The trio of Raccoon Fighter originally hails from South Jersey, and like countless bands and musicians across the country, the trio moved to Brooklyn. Once in Brooklyn, Raccoon Fighter began making a name for themselves in the borough’s crowded and extremely competitive indie rock scene with a psychedelic, bluesy, grungy sound that owes a great debt to 60s garage rock.
The now Brooklyn-based trio will be releasing their debut full-length effort, ZIL on October 1st through Papercup Music. Whereas “Santa Tereza,” the first single from the album is a bit of slow-burning psychedelica, their latest single “My Ticket” is a bit more straight forward, and much more along the lines of old fashion garage rock with an incredibly catchy hook.
You can catch the band live next week at Cake Shop, as they celebrate their album’s release.
