Indie Spotlight: Girl in a Coma

Posted in News on January 4, 2012

San Antonio’s Girl in a Coma have left a permanent tattoo on the hearts of music lovers with their piercing songs and nuclear performances. They’ve blazed a singular trail since Nina Diaz joined the band at age 13 and have found champions and comrades along the way including Joan Jett who signed them, as well as Morrissey, Sia, Tegan and Sara, The Pogues and Amanda Palmer, who have hand selected them for tours. In addition, Robert Rodriguez asked them to compose one of the key songs for his film Machete last year. Girl in a Coma are that rare feral band, unaffected by trends, that has managed to stay wild and thrill us at every turn. Exits & All the Rest, their fourth album out November 1 on Blackheart Records, is the most heart-stopping turn yet.
