Scruffles is a cutesy name, like a cartoon character’s pet dog, and California native Jon Owens has adopted it for a project that is so likeable is all but sidles up to your hand and licks your fingers. “Ghost of Drama” is bashful, lovely twee-pop smeared with loud guitars, a song that feels like it’s hurtling dreamily toward us directly from the college-rock ’90s, from Bettie Serveert to Dinosaur Jr. “Ghost of Drama” is a preview of Scruffles’ upcoming EP No Parents, which will be out July 15th on nineteen 98.
