Indoor Pets have been through a lot since their last single release last May, they’ve had a name change, various festival dates and of course frontman Jamie Glass has been busy making a meme of himself on the internet.
Glass and co mark their return with a particularly catchy guitar track ‘So Soon’ which is of a quality everyone has come to expect from this band by now, However, the lyrics are unusually positive for the band who have written songs about drug abuse (‘Barbiturates) and to feeling isolated because everyone from your youth has paired off and are having kids leaving you to feel all alone (‘All My Friends’). Indoor Pets return is a love song with Glass eulogizing in the chorus about someone quickly finding the best of him. Glass even manages to fit in some of his trademark humour with a line about heavy petting.
‘So Soon’ is full of the harsh, wobbly guitar lines, thrashing drums and distinct vocals that Indoor Pets fans have come to know and love over the last few years. When the single was debuted before Christmas it was met with an energetic reaction which will surely be amplified when Indoor Pets go on tour in February. You’d be a fool to miss out.
