Driving, melodic, playful and pop-forward, Fools Like These, the debut EP from local five-man indie outfit Tongues, impresses despite its brevity. The six-track outing is full of sparkling clean guitars and contains familiar contemporary indie reference points while nodding to the past—the title track calls to mind both Vampire Weekend and Mac DeMarco, as well as certain historically significant Classic City proponents of angular guitar-pop vibes. The group celebrates the EP’s release Friday at Caledonia, where it’ll be joined by buzz-bin dweller Chief Scout, as well as vital local rockers New Wives and Hunger Anthem.
