A female fronted four piece comprised of swirling maelstrom of guitar, solid and precise back line, and simultaneously grounded and propelled by an innocently cute sultry voice and mesmerizing stage presence - all which characterize songs that push the envelope with grandeur, sexiness, and style.

Biography

“Solid reminder of what we used to adore about indie pop.” (www.crashinin.com)

In 2005, Exotic Fever Records released the first full length effort from a young band out of Fredericksburg, VA called Pash. Two years later Pash are back with another record and, although their youthfulness still shines through, “The Best Gun” reveals a group of musician who have grown significantly as songwriters.

Pash elected to go into the studio again with DC’s own Jason Caddell (The Dismemberment Plan) and came back with eleven stunning new tracks. Recorded at Inner Ear Studios, “The Best Gun” is indie pop perfection in its purest form. Pash manages to channel the best of ‘90’s pop heros like Velocity Girl and Belly (see tracks #2 and #10) while at the same time
conjuring the likes of late Richmond DIY superstars Marion Delgado and Flashbulb Memory (see track #9).

Singer Merideth Munoz’s vocal and lyric-writing talent has always been undeniable, but, on this latest recording, her development as a musician is simply astounding. Never timid, Munoz’s vocal lines are clean and strong, her lyrics both subtle and forward. Lead guitarist Erik Bruner-Yang delivers impressive and complex melodies that turn on a dime. New bassist Ryan McLaughlin provides the solid underpinning demanded of him without writing boring, non-descript parts and drummer Jon Bibb is as spot-on as ever,
displaying his ability to play sparsely when the song calls for it whle taking advantage of moments to show off his incredible ability.

Pash are one of the most exciting and hardworking bands playing in the east coast right now. They will tour much of the US throughout the summer and fall of 2007.

Pash have shared the stage with many national acts such as: Be Your Own Pet, Tilly and the Wall, The Comas, Rainer Maria, Denail, Travis Morrison and the Hell Fighters, The Muffs, Beauty Pill, Joe Lally of Fugazi, Georgie James, and the Appleseed Cast
