Candy Whips – A.L.T.C.H.B.S.



Candy Whips – A.L.T.C.H.B.S.

Oakland-based glam-synth band Candy Whips is the brainchild of Wendy Stonehenge, who just released the vibrant and simply brilliant “A.L.T.C.H.B.S.” It’s a song that throws me back to my youth when I was totally enamored with synth-pop and New Wave and still love to this day. Hence, featuring the beautifully catchy “A.L.T.C.H.B.S.” is a no-brainer, especially since it comes without wistful nostalgia but simply continues where some of the greats of the past have left off. For the curious listener, the song title “A.L.T.C.H.B.S.” gets resolved when Wendy Stonehenge sings, “At Last, The Children Have Been Synthesized,” well, it gets at least a bit explained. Asked about the track, Wendy offers:

“Usually when I start a song this way, it either falls right into place or I end up beating my head against the wall trying to come up with a song that works with the hook.”

About the production, Wendy says further:

“‘A.L.T.C.H.B.S.’ captures the perfect synergy of man with machine. I was able to write and record the main parts in a single afternoon but it was the addition of [longtime collaborator] Arthur Tea’s guitars that really brought this song to life.”
