The Garrys 'Surf Manitou' (album premiere)
Published May 16, 2017Sisterly Saskatoon trio the Garrys gave us Warm Buds last year, and now they're keeping the retro sounds and good vibes going strong for a new record called Surf Manitou. Before it's out next week, Exclaim! is giving you an exclusive early listen to the LP in its entirety.
The record is a concept album, inspired by an array of spots in the "sleepy" resort town of Manitou Beach, SK, and although the new songs do hear the band carrying over their early rock'n'roll and doowop-inspired sound, the three-piece insist that it's "more technical and musically mature" than their last offering.
Injected with what the Garrys call "a gratuitous does of beach sass," tracks like "Make Out at the Drive-In," "Mike's Beach Bar" and closer "Waiting on a Wave" will instantly have you pining summertime fun.
Surf Manitou officially washes ashore on May 19 via Grey Records, but you can give it a spin right now down below.
