"The first single Week-end At Bernie's - a delightfully 90's little indie pop rock candy" Read more at Rock n Folk
“Week-end At Bernie’s” is the first single released from the upcoming album A Superior Athlete (April 22nd), and like the other tracks on the record, it wears the influences and experiences of the last year on its sleeve. A year spent in and out of lockdowns hunkered down with a series of classic 80s movies, including Ferris Bueller’s Day Off and this song’s namesake. A year spent rediscovering era-defining records that graced the cd-changers of many a college student’s car. Pavement, Modest Mouse, Weezer all find themselves name-checked in Hoorsees’ lyrics and song titles, and, of course they have an indelible sonic imprint in the angular guitar lines of Thomas Gachod, the languorous vocals of Alex Delamard, and the emulsifying drive of Zoé Gilbert’s bass alongside Nicholas Conte’s drums.
A Superior Athlete follows the Hoorsees album which delivered a showcase of shimmering “mid-fi” guitar pop that blended lush melodies with the laidback flavor of 90s slacker rock. A Superior Athlete heralds an energized new chapter for the band. While their debut revelled in dreamy pop, this new release finds the band wide awake and more vivacious than ever.
