Summer Cats drop new single, tour

Melbourne Australia’s Summer Cats are keen students of POP in all of its
flavors. From the motorik strum of Modern Lovers to the folky lilt of early
Creation/Sarah label bands to the feedback-drenched noisy pop of the 00s,
Summer Cats have got you covered. Their 2009 Slumberland album “Songs For
Tuesdays” dazzled with its seemingly effortless song craft and sharp
melodicism. Packed with proper tunes and confident vocals, it is one of the
finest indiepop albums of recent memory.

Now Summer Cats are ready to release their first single since the album, and
it’s a corker. “Your Timetable” is a well-honed slice of noise-pop, full of
fuzz guitar, romping organ and a chorus to die for. Augmented by new second
guitarist Jeremy Cole (from excellent Melbourne band The Zebras), Summer
Cats turn “Your Timetable” into a glorious racket of barely-contained guitar
squall and crashing drums – a perfectly infectious two minute pop gem.

On the flip we have live favorite “TV Guide” finally given the studio
treatment. Showing another facet to Summer Cats pop sound, “TV Guide” is an
organ-driven bopper featuring excellent vocals from Scott Stevens,
restrained guitar jangle ‘n’ strum, and yet another indelibly catchy melody
and chorus. With its charming minimalism, “TV Guide” could fit right in on
an early Flying Nun compilation — a high compliment indeed.

Jangly, fuzzy and catchy as hell, Summer Cats make brilliant pop records to
dance and swoon to, and this fine single is sure to please fans of all
things melodic and groovy.

“Songs for Tuesdays is an album anyone with a fondness for spiky, catchy,
and super fun indie pop should own.” – allmusic.com
