Sophomore EP, The Same Noise, out August 19th via Sniffling Indie Kids.
It’s always a good day when these New Jersey based fuzz pop aficionados release a new track. ‘Summer Lifeguard’ is there most recent, and will feature on their upcoming new EP The Same Noise. It is a relaxed and chiming endeavour that has this one delightfully off kilter note in the opening riff that gets me every time. Love it.

Usually, they’re all about being carefree, and seizing the day, but instead this guy really just gets left behind.
