Say hello to the song you're about to jam nonstop all summer long. The Mantles, who have an impressive repertoire of psychy garage pop tracks, have released “Hello”, a song from their upcoming Long Enough to Leave record. The tone is rich, ebullient, and slightly revivalist, as if its a song we have heard before, maybe its a time-traveling Zombies or 13th Floor Elevators deep cut. The playful melodies and childish alto harmonies make for a pleasant take on polished-up garage pop. Not to mention those shiny little guitar solos that are strewn throughout it. It's a jammer, all right, and probably your best bet for the first track on that summer love mix you're making.
