November/December Headlining Tour Dates on Sale Today

(New York—September 24, 2021)  Today, Winnetka Bowling League releases the title track “pulp” from their forthcoming EP coming later this fall via RCA Records. Tickets for their November/December headlining tour are also on sale today.

Listen to “pulp”: 

“pulp” was written and produced by front man Matthew Koma who explains the story behind the song:  “’pulp’ was a real life recap of a trip I took when I was 18 to Scranton PA. I got on this Martz Trailways bus and sat next to this girl who was a few years older than me and dressed really cool. We talked the whole trip and she played me Belle & Sebastian for the first time. I fell in love with her and she told me she liked girls. “

“pulp” follows their previous single “barcelona” with Sasha Sloan, a wistful song featuring the band’s signature dreamy indie-pop sound, also featured on their forthcoming EP due out this fall.

Koma says about getting back on the road:
Like most bands during the pandemic, we did our best to connect via live streams, etc. but it simply doesn’t compare to playing in a room, with real people, in real time. We’re beyond excited to get back to botching our own songs live and stressing over ticket counts. There’s just some anxieties the internet can’t duplicate.“
