When guitarists Ross Adam and Rene Schaefer started Scale Models in mid 2010, all they wanted was to combine the shambolic charm of mid 1980s british pop (think The Wedding Present and pre-make up Cure) with the energy of The Pixies and Dinosaur Jr.

Not surprisingly, once they added drummer Danny Martinov and vocalist/songwriter/trumpet player Clare Hourigan to the mix, things quickly mutated into a musical direction all of their own.

The 8 song debut cd from Scale Models was recorded and mixed by James Alexander Dean at Electric Sound in Melbourne Australia over a sunny weekend in June 2011. This man knows a thing or two about indie pop and has perfectly captured the band's pop attack.

It's chock full of skewed pop hooks, combining uplifting melodies with melancholy musings on life, love and the human condition. It's bittersweet and it also kinda rocks.

All songs written by Scale Models.

Rene Schaefer: Guitar
