Most pets I suppose are indoors. Maybe rabbits, guinea pigs and horses would count as outdoor pets. And bees? Is a bee a suitable (predominantly) outdoor pet? Aaaanyway this is the debut record from this Kent power pop lot whose fuzzy infectious songs recall early Weezer and Ash and have already been grabbing ears on various 6 music playlists.

Ah I remember playing this in the office last week. I wanted to hear *anything* but jazz but when the chorus for opener 'Hi' burst in, I decided I wanted to hear jazz again. Indoor Pets are the kind of high energy power pop band that you used to see a lot in the 90s when (presumably) people had more energy than they do now because they weren't sat looking at phones the whole time.
The issue with the chorus from 'Hi' is that for a nanosecond it has a Busted type feel to it but really the band have done themselves a disservice with it as theirs is a slightly more sophisticated thing...but not much. What we are looking at here is something that at its best is like the finer pop bursts of Ash but at its worst is just generic pop punk saving itself with ok choruses. I can 100% guarantee that Steve Lamacq is on board but forget Brit Pop - this is the type of thing bands like Disco Inferno and Bark Psychosis provided an antidote to in the mid 90s. It was literally everywhere back then.
