Dynamite Walls

San Diego five-piece Dynamite Walls sophomore full-length is a diverse mix of influences resulting in indie rock that’s polished enough for a good hook and rough enough to keep you interested. Each band member has different influences, from surf music to emo, Phish to the Deftones. Dynamite Walls is planning on taking Texas by storm at The South By Southwest fest in March.
