Our friends Hightstown band YJY released a new single last week ahead of the exciting news of their forthcoming EP. If you know YDKJ you know we are basically best friends with the band. OK, that may not be true but we do love them. Their outstanding debut EP Couch Surfin USA was one op my top albums of 2015. We have shared sweaty hugs, strong drinks and hearty laughs. Oh, and we paid homage to their last video “Amelia” with a video of our own.


The new single, which premiered over at website The Line of Best Fit, is classic YJY. Just when the summer heat is turning up a notch “Summer Lifeguard” comes out to bring some cool. Great surf tinged guitar guide the song while the steady rhythm section is the sweet undertow. As always with YJY there is a but of welcome snark in the lyrics without every being too clever. They have opened sets with this great song for a while and I am thrilled that it is finally getting an official release.

We have a lot of fun with this band, sometimes teasing back and forth, but their talent is deadly serious. I am eagerly looking forward to the new EP, The Same Noise, out on label Sniffling Indie Kids on August 19th .
