Formed in 2010 in Norman, Oklahoma, roughneck pop-punk quartet BRONCHO were started by guitarist/vocalist Ryan Lindsey, guitarist Ben King, bassist Jonathan Ford, and drummer Nathan Price. The project began as a loose recording session where Lindsey quickly sketched out a few ideas before sending them around to some friends for advice and ideas. Before long the careless demos became the basis of a full-on band, with Ford going so far as booking the group a show without consulting the other collaborators on the project. Taking inspiration from early punk acts like the Ramones and the Stooges, and applying liberal amounts of '80s college rock grit, BRONCHO were born. The band's first full-length outing, Can't Get Past the Lips, surfaced in 2011, and eventually led to press and national touring, ranking as one of NPR's best-of-2011 albums, among other accolades. The album was re-released in 2013 on producer Kevin Augunas' Fairfax Recordings label, and the band started recording a second album. After leaving the label and Augunas, the group issued a single for Park the Van, "Try Me Out Sometime," in 2011, then returned with a single for CQ Records in 2013. The song, the unstoppably catchy "It's On," was used memorably over the end titles on the third season of hit television show Girls. Moving to a new label, Dine Alone, and down to the trio of Lindsey, King, and Price, the band's long-awaited second album, Just Enough Hip to Be Woman, was released in the fall of 2014. They added bassist Penny Pitchlynn for the tour that followed, and she stuck around for the next album. The new wave-influenced Double Vanity was released in June of 2016. ~ Fred Thomas
