1. Whirr is an American band from San Francisco, California, United States. The sextet formed in 2010, originally as Whirl. The name was created by the original drummer, Sergio Miranda, in the midst of recording the band’s first demos as a nameless project. It was a homage to all the bands of “the Scene That Celebrates Itself” (Lush, Ride, Moose, Medicine, Lilys, etc.). They had to legally change the name after a woman performing acoustic covers of Black Sabbath songs trademarked “Whirl” and threatened a lawsuit.

Whirr’s sound is often compared to My Bloody Valentine and Slowdive. Founding guitarist Nick Bassett also played in the band Deafheaven surrounding and including the release of their 2011 album, Roads to Judah.

After a self-released demo cassette and the Distressor EP, the band signed to Tee Pee Records in 2011. The original vocalist Byanca Munoz left the band because of creative differences, and was soon replaced by Alexandra Morte (camera shy). They released the June single that year, followed by their 2012 debut album Pipe Dreams. The band also released two splits in 2012 with Anne and Monster Movie.

In 2013, the original drummer Sergio Miranda left the band and was replaced by Devin Nunes. Former vocalist Alexandra Morte also left the band and was replaced by Kristina Esfandiari (King Woman, Miserable). The band then released a live EP entitled Part Time Punks Sessions on April 20, 2013. It was a live performance recorded in 2012 that featured the band’s previous lineup.
