LITTLE LUNGS: Hoist Me Up!: 7”

New York/New Jersey three-piece with shared female vocals (occasionally sung together, which is my favorite. They’ll likely disagree with me, because they seem like they’re probably tough chicks, but it sounds kind of like a cheer and I think that’s really neat). There are echoes of ‘90s college rock acts like Archers Of Loaf and Superchunk, with touches of modern basement punk. Brilliantly catchy, instantly loveable. Effortless strumming, personal and soulful lyrics, and somewhat off-kilter but heartfelt vocals always hit their mark. Would likely pair well with fellow lady-fronted New York popsters, the Besties. This comes highly recommended.
