Cub Scouts: Indie Pop in 90s Packaging

    The Brisbane-based indie pop band, Cub Scouts, have an instantly endearing sound; one that feels like it's been part of your life forever. Take the song, "Told You So" -- a bouncy track with impeccable melodies and charm -- a song with the perfect ratio of chill and uptempo whose catchiness never underscores its complexity. The band's knack for ease and immediacy is probably best expressed in this song's simple but relatable chorus: "I hate to say I told you so/But I told you so." Talk about infectious -- I dare you to listen to this just once.

    The video itself is like 90s porn. Well, not literally. I mean that there are a lot of 90s callbacks in it -- retro jerseys, BMX bikes, Trolls, Super Soakers, Battleship, Tim Nelson's The Chronic shirt -- it would take too long to list them all. The video is a knickknack scavenger hunt.

    Check it out below. Cub Scouts' EP I Told You So is set to drop on iTunes on 10/12.
