Flirting with shimmering sunshine and gritty riffing in equal measure, Get Inuit's debut EP is a triumph of UK indie-pop. Released on the ever-innovative vinyl fanboys Alcopop! Records on February 23rd, it's now streaming online ahead of their first ever UK tour.
Speaking on the release, the band's effervescent frontman Jamie Glass states: "001 has got us in a tizzy. We are royally chuffed with the outcome and early response to the 4 songs. Without leaving splinters on our rears, we wanted to make an EP that showed the galaxy the swelling variety of Get Inuitisms that we have in our locker. "From the drenched 'Dress of Bubblewrap' to the jagged 'I Would'. From the bludgeoned hooks of 'Cutie Pie, I'm Bloated' to the subtle ear worms crawling around 'Coping With Death In A Nutshell'.
"Writing together is a pastime that we adore next to none. Hopefully that enjoyment can be heard through the music. We're not trying to reinvent the wheel, we just want to get listeners back into cycling.
"We are looking forward greatly to showcasing the EP this summer through the festival season. I have a hunch that the songs will glisten in the warm sun."
