Nashville transplants Music Band like to keep things as sonically straightforward as their name. The trio deliver deceivingly effortless rock ‘n’ roll with a sense of lo-fi frivolity that’s perfectly befitting their new label, Infinity Cat Recordings (Diarrhea Planet, JEFF the Brotherhood). After having their track “Can I Live” featured on Infinity Cat’s bi-monthly cassette subscription series, Music Band are ready to let loose a fresh single, “I Was Like”.
Press for the 7-inch release says the song is perfect for those who spend their time “watching ’90s movies on VHS,” and there could be no more fitting description. The track is rowdy, loose, and at a scant three minutes long, a perfect jolt of pure unbridle fun — just like the ’90s, right? “It’s bad but I don’t wanna stop it,” all three members sing, “Wishing I could tell you that it’s been such a long time, but I’m having a good time.” Frankly, we’ve got no desire to get in their way, so go ahead and hit play below.
“I Was Like” b/w “Everything Wants A Piece Of Me” (featuring Mike Harris of The Apache Relay on steel guitar) is due September 9th from Infinity Cat. The 7-inch is limited to just 300 pressings, so grab yours here.
Music Band will be on tour with labelmates JEFF the Brotherhood through early October, and you can see those dates below.
