Today we’re introducing the debut 7″ from Richmond, VA’s THE AR-KAICS. The trio just dropped their 7″ She Does Those Things To Me on Speakertree Records in Charlottesville, delivering two catchy buzz-saw pop stompers.
Coming with an old-school style record label with no real artwork, the Ar-Kaics and Speakertree Records are keeping things as “60s” as possible. Both sides of this slab of wax come with a back-from-the-grave style of garage rock, boasting an infinity catchy edge crusted in just the right amount of psyched-out fuzz. “She Does Those Things To Me” is driven by a constant buzz, serving as the foundation under a wave of melodic guitar chords. The hook is tight, breezy and straight-up delicious, leading us straight into a rollicking finale that only gets heavier under the weight of the blaze. B-side track “Don’t Need Your Love” comes centered around a twangin’, blues-inflected solo. It’s brief, but it sets the tone for the moody, thud-driven anthem with all of it’s primitive glory. Hear this infectious A-side track right below, then go ahead and snag that wax from Speakertree Records!
