Girl in a Coma: More Runaway Hits

For a band named Girl in a Coma, they’re sure keeping pretty active. As one of San Antonio’s musical success stories, Latin rocker trio (sisters Nina and Phanie Diaz, along with friend Jenn Alva) has got their fans and followers itching for their upcoming series of  EPs in vinyl and digital release.  Titled  Adventures in Coverland, the collection of covers range from David Bowie to Latin music icon Selena, from Joy Division to Ritchie Valens.

The series stands as the girls’ tribute to the music that inspired their own sound, such as The Beatles “While My Guitar Gently Weeps.” In the spirit of their creative vibe, GIAC’s 7” EP sleeves will each be a piece of a game board, put together they build something greater, just like the music within them and their own sound.  Along with the release the girls  will be performing around the states with bands such as Xiu Xiu, The Wedding Present and Sia, fresh off their SXSW shows, where they performed with The RunawaysCherrie Curie in front of fans as well as the cast of the movie of the 70s band, such as Kristen Stewart.
