Pinback co-leaders, Rob Crow and Zach Smith, look like the original odd couple when viewed alongside their other musical endeavors. With roots in the San Diego metal and indie rock scenes, it seems remarkable that they are responsible for some of the most complex and melodic indie-pop coming off the West Coast. Their latest recordings continue to show off a pension for intertwining vocal harmonies and climatic hooks, rounded off by Smith's distinctive bass playing. The band sits down with host AK Brashear before their show at the Granada.
