Wife Patrol
Sifting through ‘90s grunge and alt-rock, ‘80s pop and new wave, and ‘70s punk, Indianapolis trio Wife Patrol distills everything its members love about rock with none of what is obsolete.

In 2015, Nicole (bass/vocals), Natasha (drums/vocals), and Greg (guitar/vocals) pooled their collective music experience in performance, promotion, and journalism and wrote a batch of demos – 2016’s self-released Electric Blizzard EP. Wife Patrol then took to the stage, performing throughout the Midwest, including at LadyFest Cincinnati and the MidWay Music Festival in Bloomington, Indiana. By 2017, the band earned recognition for delivering one of the top performances of WFYI’s Small Studio Sessions.

Wife Patrol’s shows range from Sabbath-esque riffage to Mazzy Star sweetness, while the group’s tight chemistry keeps everything identifiably its own.

“Indianapolis-based trio Wife Patrol delivered an energetic performance of their original tracks – an eclectic amalgamation of grunge, punk, metal, and pop – with some favorite new wave covers.” – Rebecca Kunin, Audiofemme

“The trio’s mix of slower songs and high-energy tunes makes for a diverse array of sounds for pleasant listening.” – Isaac Andrews, Indiana Public Radio

Their performances caught the attention of recording engineer/producer Paul Mahern, with whom the band recorded the Orange EP, which was released in September of 2018.

Hot Maude
Hot Maude is an energetic female rock duo from Indianapolis, IN.
