Gap Year are a 5-piece from Perth. Their debut-album Flat Out offers an intriguing mix of ’80s jangle pop and modern breezy guitar pop bands. Flat Out open strongly with Dot And Tarlene which sounds like a hybrid of Real Estate and The War On Drugs. Bon Soir is another great track and sounds like the best song The National wrote in the past decade. What a strong and pleasant debut this record is. It is like a cool breeze after months of simmering heat.
