Summer Cannibals come from Portland, Oregon. Something New is the lead track from their second album Show Us Your Mind that came out at the start of the month. The accompanying video is one of those brilliant moments where the film completely captures the essence of the song.
The song and video deal with the aftermath of a break up being encapsulated in the way singer Jessica seeks to destroy all evidence of the relationship before turning it round with a haircut, a few beers and losing herself in having a good time and smashing up guitars at the end, all in the course of two and a half minutes. It's a short sharp shock of scuzzy guitar pop with beautiful vocal harmonies that feature in so much great West Coast American music.
Show Us Your Mind is the follow-up to their debut No Make Up. They're currently at SXSW.
Summer Cannibals' website can be found here where both albums are available on CD and vinyl. They are also on Facebook and Twitter.
