CRONKITE @ THE RIPTIDE

Indie rock at the edge of the western world.

bio

Cronkite is an indie rock band from San Francisco comprised of Jorge Taylor (vocals, guitar), Chris Denend (drums), Brenton Huang (guitar, keys) and Bill Hewett (bass, vocals).

Akin to their left-of-the-dial influences (REM, Replacements, X, Husker Du, Pixies) they make rousing, sometimes noisy, always tuneful music that lives happily at the intersection of post-punk, garage-rock and power-pop.

In 2008 Cronkite released Your Champ–-a six song EP that captures the band’s early sound as a trio (with bassist Mark Daugherty). It's available on all music streaming services.

Several singles have been released since then on Bandcamp and Soundcloud. A new album is slated for release in 2019.
