Out this June on Quite Scientific

This Detroit quartet demonstrates the impact of earnest pop when it’s bolstered by four minds already finely honed into sensibilities for atmospheric augmentation, shred-it-up-energy, wholesome-smacking new-wave grooves and knotty rhythmic patterns –

The reason their “debut” sound has such strong presentation is that this band -as-a-unit- has been building towards it for a year (but then, even more than that - they’ve each all been developing in other respective pop-heavy punk-burst bands for almost a decade – Kiddo, Javelins, Nice Device, Those Transatlantics…Child Bite, too and Thunderbirds Are Now!).

Enticing hooks and major tones – pop without the saccharine perkiness; sunny-day melodies decorating otherwise gnarly guitar roars, the always evocative (especially if complimentarily-synced) boy-girl harmonies over kicking, spilling drum bursts and good ol’ 90’s indie rock guitar-torches.
