Described by the Riverfront Times as “a compelling middle ground between the crash-and-crunch of vintage Superchunk and the moody textures of the Cure,” Let’s Not was initially conceived as a side project for Shark Dad guitarist and Defeated County multi-instrumentalist Jeremy Essig.

Adding bassist Michaela Kuba (Other People) and drummer Anne Stevenson (The Fade), the trio released their debut album Glimmer in April of 2018. Its lead single “Risk” received heavy rotation on college radio stations across the country.

Following Stevenson’s departure, the group added drummer Bob McMahon (Aquataine, Other People) and began working on their second album in the summer of 2018 while also debuting their new line-up at shows around the St. Louis area. That November the trio released The Sidewhip EP featuring two originals and a cover of Keith Sweat’s 90’s R&B hit “Twisted.”

Manic, the groups’ second full-length album in a year, will be released on March 22nd and continues the fuzz-crunch guitar feel of early 90’s indie rock mixed with synth and string elements of 80’s new wave. Written mostly during Essig’s downtime touring the country as a comedian, the album builds upon what Joseph Hess of the RFT described as “sharp musicianship with an unyielding sense of melody.”
