Indie pop band Carey make a dazzling statement with "Hey Caty," the third release off their forthcoming self-titled EP. The song is fuzzy with smooth guitar riffs—it sounds like it could have played at a early 90's prom in the valley. The lyrics bring up thoughts of a modern Alicia Silverstone from Clueless or Winona Ryder in Heathers, as front man Bryan Davidson wispily sings out And I've seen your pictures/ And I've seen the make up on your face/ And that since of wonder we both know you had to fake.
The band hails from Nashville and was started when the members became roommates toward the end of college. After playing with other bands, they finally came together to start one of their own. "After graduation everyone was kind of burned out playing with those bands, and I really wanted to get back to a more straight-ahead, fuzzy guitar rock kind of sound" Davidson told The FADER over email. The entire EP was self-recorded by the band in their apartment to give it a home-spun vibe. "The 3 of us all kind of bonded over Teenage Fanclub and Pavement, so once we all ended up living together we decided to put a band together that fit with the music we were listening to."
Their EP will be out March 11, 2016, but you can pre-order it on iTunes here.
