L.A.’s James Supercave are back after two-and-then-some too quiet years with a new EP and some new ideas. Title track “Alarm Will Sound” is finely machined indie pop with a rock steady beat that slowly but steadily turns up the tension.—they’ve dialed down the synths that lit up their last full-length Better Strange, but there’s a less-is-more thing happening here that gives “Alarm Will Sound” a subtle but powerful complexity. It’s catchy like Foster The People et al, but it’s got a different kind of hook—something that digs in deeper. James Supercave’s Alarm Will Sound EP is out Friday—get it here—and they’ll headline the Troubadour on Sat., Jan. 26, with L.A. RECORD alums Winter and Low Hum.
