New York-based five piece Store Front have released their debut EP ‘Task’. The five songs on ‘Task’ are hook-forward pop songs about trying to make something of a life that feels squalid (sometimes in a great way). Laura Snapes of The Guardian says EP opener Rip the Price Off, which was previously released as a demo, unites Sonic Youth and Stereolab calling it “louche yet invigorating,” and Brooklyn Vegan’s Bill Pearis says it sounds “…a little like Everything But the Girl by way of ’90s Liz Phair.”

“‘Task’ is about making private jokes in your head about all the big concerns you’re trying to keep track of, especially in the cases when those things are supposed to feel gravely serious,” says singer Amy Rose Spiegel. “Rip the Price Off is about feeling like you have to be successful on other people’s terms, which is both a sick joke and sometimes an actual fact.” Later on the EP, she says, “I Would is a sweet, upbeat song about pretending you want to be alone when what you love most of all is other people.”
