Not super new but stoked to get my hands on this; Shea "BLOGGED ABOUT" Hanoi Janes' beach-fi (zing!) last year sometime and and while that song was pretty great and all this new full length really hits it; suuuch xx pop euphoria at a levell that is just ever so slightly fuller or something, can't quite put my finger on it; nice production/deft balance of raw riffage and good melodies and slightly twee wanderings, a real perfect mix of wildness/thrashyness and cleanness that's heaps like Harlem I think and like the free drugs post-swimming feeling they also tap into with guitars and drums and vocals and expired disposable photos. So catchy.
