New Jersey’s The Rareflowers began life in 2013 when brothers Jimmy and Kane Maraday met drummer Aaron Gollubier and started experimenting with cassette recordings. Five years on, their debut EP carries the kind of DIY spirit that comes from such basement experiments and the songs very much hark back to the 80s with the light neo-psychedelics of what became dubbed the Paisley Underground scene. In other words, the lighter, floatier end of jangle pop.
Already being labelled ‘incredibly catchy’, the new single from The Rareflowers is a sign that summer is on the horizon.
The New Jersey quartet conjour a very radio friendly three and half minutes on ‘New Generation’. Bringing together elements of early R.E.M. and Teenage Fanclub, it’s a tune that most fans of the jangle pop style should not miss.
