On Brilliant Colors’ debut album, Introducing, this all-girl trio looks to genres long gone for inspiration, specifically the fuzzed-out, riff-heavy shoegazer sound.

Full of distorted guitars and sorta indecipherable lyrics, the record is incredibly catchy, with punky influences (including length-the album clocks in at just under 25 minutes) that make you want to pogo. It’s hard to understand what the heck vocalist Jess Scott is singing about, but listen close-the lyrics are short and sweet ruminations on love and Anglophilia (“Over There” and “English Cities” are essentially love letters to the U.K.). These girls know how to leave you wanting more, but here’s hoping their next album makes it past the half-hour mark.
