It’s probably a really unfair time for Gingerlys; people will unfortunately just give them the blanket comparison to Alvvays…not a bad thing per se, but just so you know, the Gingerlys released Jumprope EP several weeks before Alvvays had their first release. Just saying. Other than usage of melody and a female vocalist, the structure and sound of the songs definitely differs. Listen in the background for the way the guitars distortedly twinkle in the distance…and the vocals seem happy to sort of sit atop the mix, rather than propel the track. The self-titled LP from Gingerlys will be released on November 17th via Babe City/Topshelf; Alvvays fans will love it, but mostly people that have really good taste in music will love it.
I know better than this, but all my friends were raving about the delicious new pop ditty from Gingerlys, so I finally got my ears to it. It’s got this shimmering bit of synth beneath the skin, peeled back with nods to distorted jangling…a gift that no one ever refused. Energetic and fun, but soaked in the dreamy nuance that made all my friends adore it. Look for the group to release their self-titled debut on Babe City Records on November 17th.
I’m going out on a limb here, but the new tunes from The Sea Life make me think of Omaha’s music scene in the early 00s. The vocal pitch is a bit off, even a little strained, but it’s filled with passion. There’s even a few hooks amidst the distorted chug of the guitars, opening up as the guitars begin to twinkle ever so carefully. I’m always looking to feel a bit more youthful, and this tune is doing just the trick. Look to find the band’s self-titled LP in stores on May 26th via Babe City Records/Art Is Hard Records.
