San Diego’s HEAVY HAWAII have interpreted 1950s beach-movie pop with some seriously unique guitar plucking in Teen Angel, a catchy throwback pop jam that sports an almost eery quality. The track is stained with the perfect amount of the past, and the result is another killer summer twister. I know it’s almost taboo to refer to him, but this sounds a lil like what ELLIOTT SMITH‘s 50s beach pop might have sounded like. You remember these guys from Nathan Williams of WAVVES‘ earlier band, FANTASTIC MAGIC. HH’s debut EP will be released later this year on 12″ colored vinyl via Art Fag Recordings (limited to 1000 copies).
