New York, NY (Top40 Charts) Ahead of two shows at this year's Great Escape Festival in Brighton, Canadian sibling trio The Garrys have announced the release of a new single 'Makeout at the Drive-In'.

'Makeout at the Drive-In' is a shimmering slice of surf pop, tremulous guitar licks are draped in subtle strings, framed by percussive backdrops and infused with The Garrys longing entwined vocal harmonies. With elements of dream pop that could be lifted from a Beach House record, allied to the influence of reverb-heavy 1950s harmonies and a cinematic quality that recalls the Twin Peaks soundtrack. This delectable song conjures up images of summers days of the past spent pulling up to Drive in with your date

The Garrys are a trio of sisters from Saskatoon, Saskatchewan, Canada who play garage surf pop doo-wop. Their harmonies are dreamy and precise, and their instrumentation stays true to the likes of Dick Dale and early Beatles. Formed in the spring of 2015, The Garrys pull a strong influence from early reverb rock'n'roll and 1950s era vocal harmonies. If Ed Sullivan went on a date with the Shangri-Las, they would eat ice cream sandwiches and dance to the Garrys. Like father, like daughter(s). The Garrys are Erica Maier, Julie Maier, and Lenore Maier.

The Garrys released their sophomore album, Surf Manitou, in Canada last year through Saskatoon label Grey Records. Surf Manitou is a concept LP written about the various places in the nostalgic prairie resort town of Manitou Beach, Saskatchewan. The album is more technical and more musically mature than their first effort, raunchy and dreamy it comes with a gratuitous dose of beach sass.

At the annual 'M for Montreal' festival, The Garrys received a number of positive reviews from music critics, The Garrys received multiple generous reviews and were cited amongst several critics in attendance as being amongst 'The Best of M for Montreal'. The Garry's appear at this year's Great Escape festival in Brighton.

"Erica, Julie, and Lenore's delightful vocal harmonies over an early rock 'n' roll arrangement fade in as if being beamed to your brain from another time." - Quick Before it Melts

'The Garrys' sound is submerged in the twangy minor keyed reverb found within the '60s surf genre. Any of the guitar riffs could stand next to legendary surf rock bands like The Shadows, The Ventures, or The B-52s.'- VUE Weekly
