The Beths - Warm Blood EP

We don't know about you, but we are not happy that we learn about  a terrific record that escaped out attention when released a couple of years ago.  And it is even worse when that record has become difficult to find.  We have to admit that this specific lack of professionalism occurred with respect to Warm Blood EP, which was released in 2016.  However, Carpark Records has bailed us out by signing the ace creators of that EP -- Auckland, New Zealand's The Beths -- and re-releasing Warm Blood.

The Beths are comprised of four jazz students who love pop punk so much that they formed the band to play it.  The result is Warm Blood, which apparently was recorded soon after the band received an extra large shipment of pop hooks from Acme Pop Hook Company.  Combined with their natural musical talent, punk energy, and delicious vocals (all four members sing), the resulting record may have the catchiest five songs you have encountered in a long time.  The band will release full length album Future Me Hates Me in August, also via Carpark Records, but that is no reason to not get this EP.  Right now.

The Beths are Elizabeth Stokes (guitar/vocals), Jonathan Pearce (guitar/vocals), Benjamin Sinclair (bass/vocals), Ivan Luketina-Johnston (drums/vocals).
