We're huge fans of big, catchy as hell power pop. When you're covering a lot of indie rock and folk, the music tends to be pretty serious and important, so it's great to inject a little bit of fun in what we listen to. Summer Magic might be the best example of that. Their new single, "Hey!," is this burst of both 60's and 90's inflected power pop. It has that sugary, upbeat feel of something like The Archies, but also the sound of early Fountains of Wayne without the snark. "Hey!" is guaranteed to get crammed straight into your brain and be stuck there for a few days at least, but you won't be complaining.
You can listen to "Hey!" below. Sharks and Other Dangers, the new album from Summer Magic, will be out August 31. For more on Summer Magic, be sure to check them out on Facebook and Twitter.
