Supergroup is a term that usually refers to new bands from the classic-rock era that contained members of more well-established acts. But, as Jaguar Love has proved, you don't have to play blues-derived rock music in order to be considered a supergroup. Consisting of former members from progressive-minded noise-punks The Blood Brothers and adorably anthemic rockers Pretty Girls Make Graves (who, it should be said, sounded nothing like The Smiths), Jaguar Love is a band whose sound is closer to the latter than the former, but is still unique in its own right. The group put out an EP earlier this year, and, on August 19th, will release their debut album, Take Me To The Sea.
Yesterday, Matablog leaked the first MP3 from the record, called "Highways of Gold". The song sounds like a cover of The Clash as done by, well, Pretty Girls Make Graves, but with a new-wave style breakdown consisting of keys, before the band comes in to join the fun. Listen to it at the top of the post.
