The first days of the new year we could sit back and relax, but now we are again flooded with new releases that are worthwhile. We tend to unpack eye-catching cover art first, and this one almost literally jumped out of the listening stack. We’re talking about Heart Circle Square, the new EP from Californian garage rock trio Preschool. Ava (drums, vocals), Corbin (guitar) and Nikki (bass, vocals) recorded five short but powerful songs (including one demo) that cross the line between surfy indie rock and arty proto punk. That shouldn’t work, but the result leads to tail wagging.
Heart Circle Square is out now digitally (self-released). Add to wantlist: Bandcamp
