Chalk and Numbers – He Knew

I originally came across Chalk and Numbers via their recently released Christmas jingle, but since I’m not a huge fan of Christmas jingles, I skipped straight to their kick ass EP He Knew.

While you might groan at the thought of another throwback 60s band, I assure you Brooklyn-based Chalk and Numbers does in fact kick a lot of ass. Well, not so much kick ass as make you want to hold hands with your girlfriend and skip through a sunny field full of frolicking puppies – but man do they do that like straight gangstas.

With catchy psychedelic organs, an adorable voice reminiscent of Zooey Deschanel, and all the good girl innocence of Sandy Olsen, Andrew Pierce and Sable Yong do not mess around when it comes to making sugary sweet indie pop gems that more than live up to their self-proclaimed influences of The Beach Boys and Dusty Springfield.

Stream the EP below or head over to bandcamp to grab your free copy.
