If your Dad is really against modern indie music, let him listen to Sydney four-piece underlights whose kalidescope of sounds is a reincarnation of 60s psychedelic rock.
Currently working on their first EP, the band comprises Jack Friels and Darius Navidzadeh on guitar/vocals, Tom O’Dell rocking the drums, and Johnny Took on bass. Despite claiming that they have “developed our own blend of rock, blues and psych”, there is no denying that debut single “Now That You’re In Love” has shades of the 60s in it. Nonetheless, the boys have given us a pretty good debut track, with a classic psychedelic sound and smart, simple lyrics that describe the changes inflicted by love on a mysterious girl.
My only major criticism of Underlights is that they haven’t released many songs. Yet with their impending EP, and having all ready been featured on Triple J unearthed it is likely there are many more songs to come from these guys.
