THE BANDICOOTS - OVERNIGHT INNOVATOR
Released October 14, 2015
By Rose Morris
Overnight Innovator, the first single from The Bandicoots’ upcoming sophomore EP Quarters at the Penny-Arcade, delivers the irresistibly punchy, Brit-pop-inspired sound that we’ve come to expect from the band. With its catchy hook and jangly layered instrumentals, Overnight Innovator is definitely a crowd-pleaser. While The Bandicoots may not have the most unique sound in the world (listen to some early Arctic Monkeys and Pete Doherty and you’ll see what we mean), we love their smooth vocals, accessible lo-fi sound, and cool-kid vibe. The music video for Overnight Innovator is probably their best yet, maintaining the DIY aesthetic of their earlier videos but with a polished feel. All in all, we always love hearing new stuff from these gents and look forward to the upcoming EP.
