The Sea and Cake "Car Alarm"
It has been a busy 15 years since The Sea and Cake formed, but even a hectic performance schedule can’t keep these indie-rock veterans out of the studio for long. The Chicago-based group’s eighth full-length record, Car Alarm, is set to come out at the end of October. “Car Alarm,” the namesake single, features fuzzy guitars in balance with charming, sharp counter-guitar in the background. Lead instrumentalists Sam Prekop and Archer Prewitt deliver sweet, breathy vocals that coo and dance around a richly layered pop melody and hard-hitting percussion. This luscious track seamlessly translates the band’s live performance into the studio setting. Lulu McAllister
