Toronto surf punk outfit Knifey have released their new single, “Summer Girls”, which is another perfect encapsulation of the bands Modus Operandi; it’s as much a rallying cry for a rawkus beach party as it is a wistful look back at what could’ve been. The track lives on the bands debut album Beached, due out September 29th.
From frantic highs to ardent lows, Summer Girls is a song about romance and passion in the deep summer. It’s about the fast kind of love you can blink and miss while speeding down lazy summer roads. Reflective, patient hooks rise above relentless percussion and blistering guitars. Like all Toronto summers, the song is short and precious, and, like the coming fall, quickly slows into a dreamy, reflective outro that yearns for things not appreciated in their time.
