San Francisco’s WAG just released their debut LP No Worries, an upbeat album heavily influenced by ’90s rock radio. These guys aren’t just imitating Nirvana or Green Day, however. Subtle country influences that I’m afraid I will always be a sucker for help separate the band from the pack, while the energetic vocals of Lucas Nerlva manage to take the band even further. Although WAG has barely been around for a year, they’ve released a pair of EPs to go along with No Worries, which was recorded at Tiny Telephone and produced by Brandon Eggleston. WAG’s next confirmed local show will be at Thee Parkside with Coo Coo Birds and The Singles on August 7.
