Half Asian and half Latinx. Two sisters, a cousin, and their close friend. The Linda Lindas have been carrying on L.A.’s spirit of punk, power pop, and new wave since 2018 when Mila, Eloise, Lucia, and Bela started playing DIY benefits in Chinatown with original punks like Alice Bag, Alley Cats, Phranc, and The Dils. Since then, they’ve shared the stage with indie heroes like Best Coast, Bleached, and Money Mark, and were hand-picked by Riot Grrrl legends Bikini Kill to open up for them at one of their reunion shows at the Hollywood Palladium. When gigs were canceled due to the pandemic, they wrote a song and made a video with a slew of guest stars to get out the vote in the presidential election and self-released their eponymous debut EP, which features songs penned and sung by each member of the band. In 2021, they reached a wider audience by appearing in a key scene of the Amy Poehler movie, Moxie, before performing their now-legendary set for the Los Angeles Public Library that included “Racist, Sexist Boy.” Unexpectedly and organically, the clip went viral, expediting their deal with Epitaph Records and setting them up for more shows, more music, and more fun. In 2022 they released their debut album Growing Up. The Linda Lindas’ debut channels classic punk, post punk, power pop, new wave, and other surprises into timelessly catchy and cool songs sung by all four members—each with her own style and energy.
