Another day, another utterly wonderful guitar gem from an unknown band from the bottomless well of talent that has been called Australia. MINING BOOM dropped off "PDA" from an upcoming cassette/7" they have in the works. "PDA" is just purely excellent indie rock; it has the breezy to it like a Captured Tracks band mixed with the catchy riffage the Strokes use to produce. It's speedy and simple, sort of like how Cloud Nothings use to do it before they got infused with post-punk and angst. A song that could have easily turned out monotonous and repetitive (the song rarely deviates in style and instead settles into a a super catchy riff and groove), in the hands of MINING BOOM comes out perfectly. "PDA" is just a wonderful four minute earworm, a remind of what indie rock is like done right without trying to meet some vague sort of expectation, and instead just made into effortless guitar rock.
