Bedroom pop indies Exam Season are back with a cool and refreshing new taste of a forthcoming EP.
Little Indie first introduced what was then the solo project of singer/guitarist Ed Watson, back in March 2016. After bringing in a few extra members (Jack Laurilla, lead guitar; Louis Kneale, bass, and Toby Matthews, drums), we haven't heard from the Hampshire quartet for well over a year, not since the single 'Everything Is Salted Caramel' early in 2017, but this week they deliver up some 'Strawberry Milk'.
The track (the first to have been penned by the whole band) comes from 'smol', their second four-track EP out on August 3, and was written about "the anxiety that comes with feeling your youth slipping away", is an easy roll with Ed Watson leading the way, accompanied by lifting drums, lilting guitars and harmonies.
Listen to ‘Strawberry Milk’ below.
