Edmonton’s Brunch Club are the purveyors of short but catchy jangling pop tunes and there is no exception to this rule on their first release for well over two years. They open with the addictive Dandelion Dreams which may well make all those who have already published their best of 2019 lists weep. It’s pretty much a near perfect pop song.
It’s followed by short and appealing songs that flit from indiepop to power pop. The jangling guitars and the vocals will draw you in and before you know it all eight songs have been and gone. Bike Riding and Wasted Sun could easily be singles in their own right. Another Wasted Summer is a concept album about wasted time. Judging by it’s contents Brunch Club certainly haven’t and I really hope the “Goodbye Brunch Club! ending isn’t true!
Amazingly Another Wasted Summer is available on a pay what you want basis from here.
