the Rocketboys

“I would sell you out in a heartbeat, because you can defend yourself.”

Although music released back in 2007 can hardly be considered new, at least it’s still fresh to this here set of ears. The Rocketboys, who have only recently shortened their name from their former Homer Hiccolm & the Rocketboys moniker, are a groyp of semi-shoegazing indie kids from the musical hotbed of Austin, Texas. The band’s Sing, Bird, Sing EP is a collection of six slow-riding pop tracks. It’s certainly familiar, but with enough cheek (on “Heartbeat” in particular) to set the band far enough apart from the rest of the pop/rock fray. Catch the band on tour with Dear Future throughout the month of July.
