The Hairs’ Kevin Alvir has a great feel for those warm-sounding, catchy indie pop songs that recall the era of cassette singles and the type of fare that would get heavy rotation’d at college radio stations of yore. Former SGum staffer Brandon Stosuy called the outfit “a twee Wavves, a less punked-up/still snotty Cloud Nothings, an extremely polite Happy Flowers,” which is a pretty good jump-off. They’ve got a single coming out later this month on WeePOP!, and today we have that release’s A-side “I’ve Been Working Out,” a fun jangle of a song with a nice pop sensibility. Download below.
The “I’ve Been Working Out” 7” is out 2/21 on WeePOP! Records.
