TWO CARTOONS   
Tiny Terrors
(Yellow Eye)

Born nearly two years ago when Otago Uni students Isaac McFarlane and Bradley Craig were on holiday in Auckland, Two Cartoons have now produced two EPs this year, and have cemented a remarkable arrival.

While March's first offering called Jelly Tipped Lips (which featured the great single Better Coast) was jangly-guitared Dunedin kiddiness through and through, this year-ender promises a beach-friendly alt-pop sound with up-tempo drums and simply wonderful harmonies.

The duo describe themselves as "musical fanboys" and have an unashamed love of Wavves, but their sound is not derivative and sets them up to be ones to watch over the summer.
