Seattle garage rock outfit Tea Cozies boasted production by Erik Blood on their 2009 release Hot Probs. They’re back with a sound that’s really, really good. Listening to their new single, “Dead Man’s Sister”, I can’t help but think of current hot bands like Best Coast, La Sera, and Dum Dum Girls. These ladies and gents fit the mold, with light fuzz meets heavy reverb, dreamy vocal melodies meet punchy guitar riffs. What’s stunning, however, is that “Dead Man’s Sister” holds in it an originality that Tea Cozies can call their own. It’s catchy as all hell, highly dance-worthy, yet not overdone.
And then there’s the video. Green alien eyes, crazy ray guns, wild dance moves. This one has it all. Listen to the song and watch the video below, and if you want to grab a copy, go here. “Dead Man’s Sister” was engineered and mixed by Andy Meyer at Seesaw Studio.
