Miami's Pool Party -- a band that is not from Iceland, but is just fucking huge there -- has released two new songs. Fitting to accompany any "cannonball!" cry, they further propagate the group's odd humor, complete with wildly convincing foreign accents.
The first track on the new demo, entitled "Teenage Weirdo" shows a softer side of our party monsters. Softly sung over a simply, strummed guitar riff, the song touches on fond high school memories, such as getting pussy, holding hands, and awkward thoughts about girls and how their hair smells.
The second track is a live recording. Entitled "She Love Dick," it fully captures the energy given off at their shows. The song itself deals with being in love with a woman who loves dick. Concise, direct and to the point, we feel it is totally relatable. An ideal situation to be in, really.
Pool Party has also released an Anthology of its all-time greatest hits, available on the official Bandcamp page.
