Track of the Day #132: The Pooches – Heart Attack

Posted by Neil Wilson

The Pooches - Heart Attack
Last year’s Smoochin’ With The Pooches from The Pooches was an under-rated release in our opinion.  It got a tape release via Gold Mold Records and had enough about it to help lift it from the crowd of lo-fi bands plying their trade in Glasgow at the moment.

As I say there was enough in the release to earmarked The Pooches as ‘ones to watch’, and they’ve certainly proved that with Heart Attack, the lead track from their forthcoming, and identically named, EP.  The track is short and sweet, but not hurried as you might imagine with it’s sub three minute length.  Jimmy Hindle’s considered and lazy vocals are perfectly complimented by the dreamy alt-pop melodies, elongating the track perfectly.  Splashes of tropical pop courtesy of a guitar solo, create more than just a head nodding experience.  Heart Attack snuggles nicely into that elusive terrority marked ‘ear-worm’.
