Biography

Formed in the mid-2010s in Oakland, California by a quartet of musicians who already had other bands (like Andy Human & the Reptoids, Pang, and Penny Machine) but wanted to recapture the angular, anarchic version of post-punk as played by Essential Logic, X-Ray Spex, and the early Fall, the World featured Amber Sermeno on bass and vocals, Elyse Schrock on drums and vocals, guitarist Andy Jordan, and Alexa Pantalone on bongos. Setting the band apart from the usual post-punks was the dual saxophone attack provided by Pantalone and Stanley Martinez. They began playing shows around their hometown, driving the locals onto dancefloors with regularity. Their sound caught the ear of U.K. label Upset the Rhythm, and the label released their first record, a four-song EP titled Managerial Material, in early 2016. The band also released it on It Takes Two, a label run by Martinez and Pantalone. Soon thereafter, they began work on their debut album with producer Brett Eastman (a member of Jordan's band Andy Human & the Reptoids). Once finished, it was mastered by the ever prolific Mikey Young. First World Record was issued by Upset the Rhythm in late 2017. ~ Tim Sendra
