The Black Heartthrobs are an indie rock duo with David Benitez on guitar and vocals and Jane Greely on drums. This bizarro White Stripes band fuses catchy early Weezer-eque songwriting with the garage rock delivery of Pavement and The Nerves. Hell, they both even studied songwriting from Peter Case of The Nerves. David (bassist of Osker-Epitaph records) met Jane at UCLA in 2006. He was asked by a DJ to play some of his songs live on UCLA radio and he enlisted Jane as his back beat. They initially started down the road of making alt-country music ala Wilco, but then turned the car around and decided they are not old enough to be a bar band and they certainly don t want to put anyone asleep. Since then the group has been crafting their punchy rock sound and gigging all over Los Angeles.
