TOTT 2015 #5: GET INUIT

Storming in at #5 is Get Inuit

Coming straight out of Kent, and sounding like a strangely cohesive mix of Weezer, Wheatus and FIDLAR, Get Inuit offer a glistening ray of shimmer and warmth to hold your hand and guide you cheerily through these bitterly cold winter months.

You could trawl through the internet for hours, and would still be lucky to come across a band as distinctive, as boisterous, and as full of life as Get Inuit. The sharp, cutting vocals of Jamie Glass pierce the hazy winter air and help to wash away the dreary monotony of everyday life. They supply a much-needed burst of fresh, upbeat, surf-inspired pop to a music scene seemingly all too eager to lie down and surrender to the dreaded Seasonal Affective Disorder.

Premiered on DIY, ’Pro Procrastinator’ is their latest release, and deals with the mundane nature of the day-to-day grind. Delivered whole-heartedly and earnestly by the frontman, the lyrics ‘I’m wasting my life’ are instantly relatable, and speak for many of us. Who hasn’t felt like this? Come on, we’ve all been there.

Over 3 years, the guys have racked up a pretty impressive CV. They’ve played alongside the likes of Slaves, Broken Hands and VANT, and have made appearances at 2000 Trees, Forgotten Fields, The Great Escape and Y Not. On top of this, they’ve received support from Phil Taggart, Annie Mac, Huw Stephens, John Kennedy, and Greg James, racking up plays on Radio 1, XFM and BBC Introducing, and even featured on an episode of Made In Chelsea. Everybody loves these guys. And with good reason.

The fact that their latest EP, Luge Lessons, is completely DIY is only all the more endearing. Their guitarist James recorded and produced the whole thing, whilst their drummer, Rob, created the music videos and all of the artwork.

These are a band who don’t take themselves too seriously, and their brand of dirty, grungy, indie pop smacks of mischief. Charming, infectious and bursting with raw energy, Get Inuit are on their way.
