Laundry met in the University of Oregon dorms in the fall of 2017, and the four of them quickly bonded over a shared interest in the local music scene. Eugene bands like Spiller, Novacane, and the Graduating Class helped the band find gigs at house shows and bars around the college, during which the band began to develop its energetic live performance and collaborative songwriting process. 2019’s Affirmation, found the band modest and unexpected success on streaming services. 2020’s Fast Cars saw the band experiment with more in depth storytelling and increasingly elaborate music videos, while maintaining the dreamy yet energetic Eugene rock sound. @laundrytheband – https://linktr.ee/laundrytheband
