If you're headed to the beach this holiday weekend, this should definitely be your theme song. Jelly provides you with exhilarating guitar-driven surf rock from none other than Nashville. Interestingly Catchin' Up is more experimental than standard surf tunes: a unique ska-punk vibe in that addicting vocal cadence, singing guitar riffage packaged in a sound reminiscent of Family of the Year's St. Croix, and existential wit found in relatable lyrics such as "maybe I'll impress my dad, become a businessman." Duo Will Aiken and Kyle Buckley sure do live up to their bio statement, in "making music that just feels right." It's a thoughtful dose of cerebral stimulation, all in a completely accessible and craveable track that feels just like a dip in the ocean. Thankfully they just released their Beach Sounds EP last Friday with three equally amazing songs you can dive into. Make sure to stream and buy yourself a copy over on their Bandcamp page.
