If there’s a kind of signature rock-and-roll sound that Los Angeles inspires, it might be something like the sun-soaked, fuzzy garage-pop of The Regrettes, a young, ascendant band that also takes inspiration from ’60s girl groups and riot-grrrl punk. The band’s recurring themes are empowerment and self-worth, especially when navigating romantic relationships, which is the primary focus of the group’s new album How Do You Love?, a set of songs chronicling different stages of a love affair. While in Houston for a sold-out concert, the band visited Skyline Sessions to record the songs “I Dare You” and “Pumpkin,” both from the new album, which will be released on Friday, August 9.
