Indoor Pets (formerly known as Get Inuit), have announced details of the release of their debut album, Be Content, which is released on Wichita Recordings on Friday 8th March 2019 and today the band have shared Being Strange, the latest track to be taken from the album.
Co-produced by the band’s guitarist, James Simpson and Kristofer Harris and mixed by Claudius Mittendorfer (Weezer, Ash, Yak, Parquet Courts), the tracklisting of the 14-track album is as follows:
- Spill (My Guts)
- Pro Procrastinator
- Heavy Thoughts
- The Mapping Of Dandruff
- Being Strange
- Mean Heart
- Good Enough
- Cutie Pie, I’m Bloated
- My Amnesiac
The band recently shared the first taster from the album Hi, a hook laden blast of power-pop stylings, fuzzed-out riffs and infectious melodies, which picked up support from the likes of Annie Mac, Huw Stephens and Jack Saunders at Radio 1, Lauren Laverne at 6Music and Amazing Radio.
Formed straight after leaving school in Sittingbourne, Kent, it wasn’t long before their effortless songs were attracting attention, with one of them making Record Of The Week on BBC Introducing and within two weeks Huw Stephens had picked up on the track.
For the next few years Indoor Pets wrote and gigged incessantly, building up a batch of killer tunes and a devoted fanbase across the country. They did, and still do, everything themselves. From making the artwork to organising their own tours on the road, producing music, building their own stage monitoring system and even running their own finances (Simpson: “if anyone wants to spend any money they have to ask me,”). It’s a fiercely DIY ethic born less from punk principle as it was from necessity. “It was either do it yourself or don’t have it done,” notes Glass, “and we decided to do it ourselves.”
Signing to Wichita Recordings, the band set about recording their debut album, a record seemingly full of a bottomless pool of great tunes. Familiar feelings of not fitting in or wanting to play the hand life’s dealt you are delivered with self-deprecating wit and Glass’ trademark use of double-bluffing word play. Think Rivers Cuomo and a pre-sandpit Brian Wilson bunking off school to play records and snigger at the cool kids. They’re smart, life-affirming and all contained within a thumping primary-coloured pop wallop.
