Superb C86-influenced guitar pop on debut EP from new Glaswegian act, Bubblegum Lemonade

'Ten Years Younger' is the debut EP of Bubblegum Lemonade, the solo project of Glaswegian singer-songwriter Laz who also plays in another local act. Strawberry Whiplash. It consists of four songs that catch superbly the flavour of the C-86 era. It opens with the title track which features jingle jangle Rickenbackers and is total guitar heaven in the vein of early Primal Scream, Postcard Records, Biff, Bang, Pow! and the early Servants. It very twee in its sound and wonderful for it. 'The Tomorrow People' has a more upfront Byrds sound and vocals from Laz that recall Bobby Gillespie in early Primal Scream. 'Unsafe at Any Speed' is reminiscent of the early Jesus and Mary Chain. It is primitive and raw, and rudimentary in its playing, all of which adds to its charm. 'That Thing You Do' is another piece of Primal Scream/Byrds heavenly pop, and is very summer-flavoured with Jesus and Mary Chain-style drumming. Absolutely irresistable ! More please !
