Petite League to Release 'Rips One Into the Night' LP; "Sun Dogs" Streaming at Consequence of Sound

Posted on June 20th, 2017

Today we're excited to announce that Petite League have joined the family! We will be releasing their forthcoming 'Rips One Into the Night' LP on September 1st, on limited edition vinyl. The first single "Sun Dogs" is streaming now at Consequence of Sound.

“Petite League’s fuzzy style of indie is well worth your attention. “Sun Dogs” in particular shimmers and shimmies like a jangly, stripped and scuzzed The Strokes. The track plays between bobbing choruses and scratchy, alluring bridges, a mix that’s as catchy as it is heartfelt.”

The first single in a series of Luke Reed singles we'll be releasing this year is streaming now at Gorilla vs. Bear!

"The dreamy, gently warped “I Don’t Care About Anything but You” has a bit of a young Mac DeMarco/Makeout Videotape feel to it, and like all of Reed’s best jams, it radiates a wistful, yearning vibe that makes it highly relatable and bittersweet."
