Published Oct 15, 2015California-born, Montreal-raised twin sister duo the Muscadettes dropped their debut EP Side A back in the spring, providing a '60s-esque, surf rock-inspired soundtrack to the summer. Now, as another Canadian winter looms, the sisterly unit have announced plans to follow up the first EP with the logically titled Side B. The six-song set is due out on November 6 through Costume Records.
The new material hears Kathleen and Chantal Ambridge toying with an array of genres that include retro surf rock, fuzzed out '80s-esque garage rock, twee pop, grunge and groove-infused power pop.
The wide range of "intoxicating" sounds are woven together seamlessly with distorted guitars, keyboard riffs, powerful drums, lusty vocals and catchy choruses from the Ambridges.
It seems like a lot to squeeze into six short, sweet songs, but if lead single "Earthquake" is any indication, they manage to do it well.
The jangly, retro-pop tune is a hazy, psychedelic blast of warmer days gone by that is sure to make any cold fall weather a little bit more bearable. Give it a listen in the player below [via Consequence of Sound] and keep scrolling to relive the band's recent Exclaim! TV session.
