There aren’t enough female-fronted rock groups out there, but at least Houston’s Wild Moccasins are doing their part to contribute to the scene. Fronted by Zahira Gutierrez, Wild Moccasins make exuberant and energetic indie-pop wild enough to have gotten them noticed by Of Montreal, who are taking the quintet out on tour this spring. The band’s got an LP coming later this year for New West Records, but in the meantime, it’s released a single, “Gag Reflections.” The A.V. Club has the exclusive premiere of the clip, which is filled with jangly guitars, blue lipstick, and singsong choruses. Plus Gutierrez drinks a bottle of Windex, so there’s that.
The group’s upcoming tour dates are below.
