Prom Body – “Vibrant” (Stereogum Premiere)

On their upcoming Naughty By Natural, Tucson combo Prom Body practices an exceptional and exceptionally poppy strain of lo-fi garage rock — a buzzing conglomeration of the Buzzcocks, Jay Reatard, Wavves, the Strokes, Ty Segall, and a million obscure guitar bands that release limited edition 7-inches and perform at your local punk-rock dive bar and/or DIY basement venue. “Vibrant” is an aptly named example of what Mike Fay and company do, a power-pop joyride overflowing with snaking guitar lines, cooed vocal melodies, and scuzzy power chords. Listen below.
