If it’s been a while since you found an Alt-Indie artist worth getting excited about, prepare to be elevated by Petty Cassettes’ feverishly exuberant fourth single “Lately”.
Lately kicks off with a humble Indie prelude before the soundscape takes a tremulous turn and evolves into a raucous feat of Punk. Admittedly, you won’t hear many other Punk tracks with solos as sweet as the ones you’ll find in this consistently exhilarating hit. That’s where the nuanced infusion of Rock worms its way into the anthemically-charged track and starts to dominate the soundscape.
What more could you possibly ask for from an Indie hit? As far as we’re considered, Petty Cassettes have offered it all with Lately. It’s the kind of track you hear once and make it a firm fixture on your playlists so you can get a repeat hit of the volatile aural catharsis and the captivating instrumental talent. I’m pretty sure I’ll never forget those Slash-style solos or the easily connectable jaded lyricism.
