Las Linda Lindas have shared a new version of The Go Go’s ‘Tonite’ – check it out below.
In a statement, the group said they played the song many times when they started out as a “cover band” and continued to perform it live, prompting them to release the version as a solo track.
They explain: “Las Linda The Lindas started out as a cover band, and we’ve played more Go-Go songs than anyone else. We love the idea of going out and owning our town, and ‘Tonite’ is so much fun to play. which is powerful, especially the part where we all sing together”.
“‘We rule the streets tonite until the morning light'” and so should our fans. Since the cover was such a hit, we decided to record a studio version to pay tribute to the greatest rock band of all time, a vital part of the Los Angeles punk scene, and our heroes.”

Speaking to NME earlier this year, 15-year-old drummer Lucía de la Garza said: “We learned that music can do anything and you can get through anything: “We learned that music can do everything and that it can help you. to overcome anything. It’s really fun to see how we grow as musicians.”
“Even from the EP [autotitulado] that we wrote just a year before, you can see how we grew as songwriters, and see how we were trying to figure out what our sound was. Hopefully there’s a lot more to come and continue to show how we’re doing.”
In a four-star review of “Growing Up,” NME said: “Songs like ‘Fine’ and the aforementioned ‘Racist, Sexist Boy’ are vitally powerful glimpses of punk unrest. However, when they unleash their pop imagination, just as impressive, with tracks such as ‘Ag Fás Aníos’, ‘Talking To Myself’ and ‘Magic’ demonstrating the triumph of a catchy chorus”.
In June, the band also played live in London.
