"Around Here" from Helsinki indie rockers Pastis has got that rock and roll cred

Around Here from Helsinki indie rockers Pastis will likely make you smile seconds in. The energetic tom tom beat / pounding bass and guitar picking notes (with a serious hook) that seem to float around it all feels exquisitely free. The song soars like lovers running to each other enhanced by a lovely vocal performance. When the song give way to it's 50's rock and roll core with an almost Duane Eddy-esque guitar licks with batons passed to rockabilly and punk (think X's Billy Zoom) the essence of great rock and roll / new wave / power pop / punk comes clearly into view.

Around Here is from the band's latest album "Circles" (dropping this month).
