This week's hottest brand new act... Indoor Pets.
WHO: “Dirty pop” makers Jamie Glass, Ollie Nunn and brothers James and Rob Simpson.
WHAT: New, new, wave. A mix of skate pop and the quirky British punk British suburbia nurtures. Messers Costello and Cuomo should approve.
WHERE: Across Kent’s Garden Of England, although they have a sharp edge about them that suggests they’re only there to pinch apples.
The group were previously known as Get Inuit until a Canadian Inuk throat singer called them out on social media. A difference in how Inuit is pronounced meant they didn’t see the funny side.
Having built a strong live following over the last few years, fans have accepted the name change, Wichita recently signed them, and it seems that the Inuit have just about forgiven them.
WHAT SHOULD I PLAY?
Meet (or reacquaint) yourself with Indoor Pets via lead singe Hi. Its fuzzy pop should warm any heart.
