Chicago band California Wives signs to Vagrant Records

For those longing for the sound of  '80s synth music, Chicago band California Wives should fill that craving.
The group recently announced that it has signed with Vagrant Records, home to such artists as Edward Sharpe & The Magnetic Zeroes, Missy Higgins and Pete Yorn.

"We were excited to sign to Vagrant because it gave us the opportunity to work with a great producer who pushed us to think outside of our tendencies as musicians," California Wives singer/guitarist Jayson Kramer said in a statement. "The newer instrumentation and arrangements were a result of that relationship in the studio. We are thrilled to be a part of such a terrific roster of musicians at Vagrant and we can't wait to put the new music out there."

California Wives is currently in the midst of wrapping up their debut full-length album, but you can hear one of their favorite tracks, "Marianne," by clicking here to listen and grab a free download.
