My Son The Doctor channel summers past and present on "Blue Tank Tops"

It’s easy to find joy in the unbridled drive of My Son The Doctor, whose latest single “Blue Tank Tops” is an indie rock vamp tailor-made for our recollective summer. Between vignette one-liners about “East Side women talking blue chip stocks” and “local pool boys” triumphant garage rock shreds with a healthy mix of discord and polish. While such seasonal non-sequiturs seemingly endow the song with a nostalgic energy, there’s a forward-focused outlook present in Brian Hemmert’s lyrics, a quasi-implication that, with each summer to come and go,there will always idle pool party chit-chat and blue tank tops — and maybe that’s something worth looking forward to. Give the track a listen below, and keep an eye out for the band’s upcoming EP Dad Time, out later this year. Photo by Elizabeth Lopiccolo
