Purveyors of blistering alt-punk they describe as “ugly pop”, this week’s top tune from Tacoma-based step sisters Skating Polly is the most unapologetically catchy little jam yet. “Pretective Boy” comes from their brand new 4th lp, The Big Fit which dropped this week!
“It was just an experiment to see if I could write a good song using my loop pedal and it turned into one of my favorite songs we’ve ever recorded” – Kelli Mayo
Today we feature a damn sweet remix by Dan Molad of Lucius, hear the original version and see the excellent official video (directed & edited by Dave Smith) HERE.
