In any coastal city Pet Sun would be hailed as the return of surf-punk. With their effortless blend of thrash guitars and casual vocals, “Gimme Your Soul” embodies the spirit of those wave hunting vagabonds that tagged Californian parking lots with LOCALS ONLY circa 1984 . Alas, we live on the edge of a Great Lake that never goes corduroy, so most will go on labeling them as garage-rock. The thing is, Pet Sun are having a too much fun for that.
Accordingly, the video is loaded up with live footage of good times ‘round James North, smiles, pizza and a sporadic top layer of animated eyeballs, bats, brains and the all-seeing eye. The fun and the weird all within a minute and a half make…rad!
Pet Sun recently released an album via their bandcamp and it be through these red letters.
