California Wives are pleased to announce today that they have officially joined the ever-growing Vagrant Records roster. “We were excited to sign to Vagrant because it gave us the opportunity to work with a great producer who pushed us to think outside of our tendencies as musicians. The newer instrumentation and arrangements were a result of that relationship in the studio. We are thrilled to be a part of such a terrific roster of musicians at Vagrant and we can’t wait to put the new music out there,” says vocalist and guitarist Jayson Kramer.

The quartet’s sound mixes nostalgic 80’s reverb-charged vocals and dark new-wave synth lines that would make for a perfect back-drop to any John Hughes storyline. California Wives are currently in the midst of wrapping up their debut full-length album (release date and title still to-be-announced), but want you to be able to hear one of their favorite tracks, “Marianne,” today.
