Folsom Youth

Folsom Youth playing at The Press Club in Seaside on July 11. 2015.

The all-girl fuzz rock quartet Folsom Youth features Pacific Grove locals—drummer Kim Sollecito, her twin sister Kristin, the singer, guitarist Rachel Spung Emily Mullet-Foster on bass.

After about a year as band, the outfit has blossomed as an ever-present force on the local music circuit alongside like-minded young favorites including The Pip Squeeks and Moses Nose. The foursome competed fiercely in a pair of battle of the bands contests this year and have worked up to on an almost-weekly show schedule around the Peninsula.

Their sound is reminiscent of 90s alternative rock like Sonic Youth and Sleater-Kinny and recent indie garage rock like Silversun Pickups.
