Siblings L to R: Max (vox), Chase (guitar), Kit (bass), Blake (drums)
"Four super talented young musicians carving their own path. I love that they're not trying to follow trends and are always searching to expand their sound and experiment. They have a bright future." - James Lopez, President, Macro Films
"Raw, authentic, compassionate. We Don't Ride Llamas is the future of music because they respect the past. Best young group I've heard in years!" - Brad Williams, COO of HiHat Productions.
Generation Z siblings, big brother, Chase (lead guitar), and sisters, Max (lead vocals), Blake (drums), and Kit Mitchell (bass guitar), make up the Austin-based band, We Don’t Ride Llamas (WDRL). Avid readers, self-professed nerds, lovers of sci-fi, anime, fashion, and nearly every musical genre from punk to funk, the members of WDRL cannot resist any good story well told, especially those set to an engaging melody.
Having coined the term “shillelagh music” to describe the variety of musical genres they embrace, WDRL sings original songs they’ve written themselves as well as covers of some of their favorite musicians, ranging from Icelandic born Of Monsters and Men to legendary American greats, Nirvana & Stevie Wonder.
The quartet finds a great deal of their inspiration from the careers and projects of seasoned performers Kali Uchis, Unknown Mortal Orchestra, Hiatus Coyote, and Lenny Kravitz, all of with whom they hope to one day go on tour.
