Philly’s W.C. Lindsay bridges worlds in unexpected ways. The project of 22-year-old singer / rapper / guitarist / beatmaker Will Lindsay, the band got its start four years ago in the Drexel University basement show scene. But the music Lindsay played for these traditionally punk crowds was very slick and poppy from the get-go. 80s synthesizer textures and big melodic hooks blend with crunchy guitar leads and rapped verses in a super suave delivery, somewhat reminiscent of Macklemore. Or, as the band’s tagline nicely sums it up, it’s like “The Beastie Boys watching The Breakfast Club at Warped Tour.” Live, W.C. Lindsay is fleshed out by bassist George Legatos and drummer Richie Straub, and they just recorded a Key Studio Session we’ll bring you very soon. For now, enjoy today’s free download of “Little Ghost,” the first single from Lindsay’s forthcoming sophomore LP Easy Victim, Charitable Deceptions, out this April on Big Footprints Records.
