The Wild Finish are an "adult-contemporary punk" band from Chicago, Illinois. They play music for people who like music. Here is a nice thing that was said about them: "I have no doubt that The Wild Finish WILL blow me away when their full length is released. I just hope it's sooner than later." by Critical Mass. They also love you.
Chicago-land natives Gerard Pannekoek and Alex Sisto have been friends since elementary school, but it took them until after college to decide they wanted to pursue music together. Looking around at the current state of affairs and seeing a world simultaneously expanding and contrasting, perhaps it was who Mick Jagger said it best, when he sang, “What can a poor boy do, except to sing for a rock’n’roll band?” And so in 2012, the two of them, bound by a similar taste in music and a strong desire to promote social change, started writing music. By the end of the winter, having spent most of it holed up in their Wicker Park apartment, they emerged with an album’s worth of material and no intention of stopping there.
"A little garagy, a little, and very enjoyable." - The Deli Chicago
They are vaudevileins. Vaudevileins wield sound as a weapon, while tying together elements of rock, prog, and pop to form no-bullshit songs built on sweet melodies and powerful rhythms.
