Bang Bang is Shawn Strub (guitar/lead vocals) and Mandy Dietz (drums/vocals), a female indie-rock duo formed in San Francisco in 2010. With a raw, lo-fi rock sound and gutsy vocals, the twosome has a unique stopping power. During Denver’s alt-rock era, Shawn fronted the widely praised 40th Day, and later worked with Grammy-winning record producer Keith Olsen on a solo project. Dietz spent time as lead singer for the East Coast-based band Glory Box. When the two met, Mandy took up the drums to provide the rhythmic backbone to Shawn’s big voice and gritty guitar sounds.
Bang bang plays a mix of obscure-ish cover tunes and dreamy originals.
