Pretty sure you’ve heard BRONCHO. Maybe it was the jangly “Try Me Out Sometime” (which sounds like it was ripped straight out of the early ’80s post-punk songbook) or the relentlessly catchy “Class Historian” (the one with all the du-du-du-ing and a guitar riff that feels nostalgic and sunny). The Oklahoma indie-rock quartet has taken a sexier, groovier turn in 2018 full-length Bad Behavior, which starts out strong with “All Choked Up,” a snotty little ditty with a sauntering and swaggering cowbell-studded rhythm. It’s dark and funky-fun, and I imagine it’ll prompt some lip-curled dance faces when they bring it to Seattle.
