Between the Hold Steady namechecking Heavenly and the fact that every other new indie band seems to have some trace of C86 DNA, it’s the right time for Amelia Fletcher to make a triumphant return. And that exactly what’s happening with Tender Trap’s upcoming album, Dansette Dansette, due to be released, appropriately enough, by Slumberland on June 22. The very DIY video for “Girls with Guns” sounds like Fletcher and co. are returning to the cute-but-tough formula that made Heavenly one of the most endearing—if underappreciated—bands in the indie underground during the 1990s.
