Vonnegut Hardware are a classic indie rock band. Hailing from Indianapolis, it was founded by songwriter Jim Rawlinson and became a full band in 2020. They stick to the basics and nurture them with vibrant texture, interesting themes, and a vibe that you’ll want to write home about. Very turn of the century aesthetics that ring with indie rock the way it came about at its inception.
