Published Apr 22, 2016Saskatoon-based group the Garrys finds sisters Erica, Julie and Lenore Maier uniting under an umbrella of mutual love for reverb and retro vocals, bringing an eclectic array of influences to the table on their debut album Warm Buds. And while the record won't officially be out until next month, Exclaim! is giving you an exclusive early listen to the LP in its entirety.
In addition to early rock'n'roll, the three-piece draw inspiration from genres like garage, surf pop and doo-wop. It all comes together in a swirl of melancholy vocal melodies and hypnotic instrumentation. In the group's own words, "If Ed Sullivan went on a date with the Spice Girls, they would eat ice cream sandwiches and dance to the Garrys."
There's even an ode to the tasty frozen snacks on the album (simply titled "Ice Cream Sandwiches") alongside other songs about celebrating oneself ("Party for One"), as well as appreciating one's pals — or perhaps, in the case of "Three Cool Chicks," one's bandmates.
Listen to the full nine-song set right now in the player below before it gets a proper release on May 6.
