Brenda: Night School

(Dark Circles)

How any band can so perfectly encapsulate the summer or good times is beyond my comprehension, but Brenda excels with their indie, rocked-out B-52s vibe. This is the album you need at every party in your future. It’s perfect for swimming or sipping on beers in the shade. Tracks like “Top Shelf” really shine with those beautiful 1950s style keys. There’s definitely more than a little garage rock in their DNA, but plenty of ’50s and ’60s pop thrown in for good measure. The record is currently advance streaming on Consequence of Sound, and will be released on June 17.
