Young Chicago garage band Twin Peaks released yet another summer hit, “Strawberry Smoothie.” The track is off their forthcoming album Wild Onion, set to be released August 5th. Earlier they released “Flavor” and “I Found A Way”.
In comparison to the other two releases, this track is more muted with less of the swaggering, upbeat lyrics. In fact, there isn’t a lot of vocals at all. Instead, the track highlights the tight guitar hooks that the band has perfected, especially in the almost instrumental two minutes at the end of the song. In classic Twin Peaks manner, the track is at once reminiscent of good old rock and roll and completely new. It’s fun to righteously bop your head along to, even if you’re not exactly sure what the lyrics are talking about.
