Indoor Pets

Formerly known as Get Inuit, the name change doesn’t appear to have had any effect on the trajectory of this Kent-based quartet who perform – as they call it – “dirty pop”. Their debut album, Be Content, comes out on 8th March 2019 via Wichita Records – take a listen to their latest, Being Strange, here.

After signing with indie label Wichita Recordings, British rockers Indoor Pets have announced their debut album, “Be Content”, out next year but not until March. They shared a new single, “Being Strange,” which follows the release of their previous single “Hi.”

Previously known as Get Inuit, Indoor Pets sound a little like classic Weezer trying their hand at bubblegum pop, or Pixies dropping a pop-punk record. You’ll be surprised to know that frontman Jamie Glass’ voice isn’t manipulated with autotune and he didn’t suck helium from a balloon—those high-pitched harmonies are the real deal. If Indoor Pets were around in the ‘00s, “Being Strange” would’ve spread like wildfire in the U.S.—blasting out of car radios, shopping mall speakers and skate park boomboxes, and with a video all over MTV. That’s not to say that Indoor Pets don’t bring anything different to the table. You’d be hard pressed to find many bands naturally singing like Glass, unironically basking in candy-coated pop hooks while still shredding power chords.

“I Am The Hot Air”
Taken from the brand new EP ‘Luge Lessons’ released on Alcopop Records on Oct 16th
Produced, filmed and edited by Get Inuit,  Kent based indie-rockers who understand the raw power of simplicity. Signed to Alcopop Records, One of XFM’s One’s To Watch of 2015 and a red hot favourite of our pal Huw Stephens, this is Get Inuit, fresh from the industrial town of Sittingbourne! Full of fresh-picked hits which fizz and pop throughout – their debut 7″ is an effervescent slice of indie-pop that flirts with darker off-kilter, math-rock-esque tendencies! In other words, it’s bloody brilliant!

Get Inuit have just released their debut EP 001 with a full-length tentatively scheduled for next summer. It sees the group combine the bouncy indie and punk influence of their Alcopop brethren with the surf-pop sway of Vampire Weekend and their ilk – despite the fact that, as the band are eager to point out, ‘none of us can actually surf’.
