Texan Indie Synth Rock pioneers Sunday Morning Cartoons released their EP “Retro Nights” on July 31st. Don’t let the EP title fool you, Sunday Morning Cartoons have a seriously stylistic sound to offer, especially with the standout single “Radio Static Spectre”.
With some sweetly haunting uses of reverb and plenty of intricacy within the guitar notes, the prelude efficaciously pulls you into a dreamy distorted feat of Indie which includes nuances of Jangle Pop and Post Punk. I have a feeling that any fans of the Verve are definitely going to want Sunday Morning Cartoons on their radar and Radio Static Spectre on their playlists.
Vocally, there are light reminiscences to the Kooks, but there’s a smorgasbord of authentic ingenuity in Radio Static Spectre. So the main thing that will hit you is the fresh feel of their accessible radio-ready track.
You can check out Radio Static Spectre for yourselves along with the rest of the EP for yourselves by heading over to SoundCloud now.
