The Boys from Deep Sea Arcade are back with a psychedelic, reverbed little number that has us twitching in anticipation for the rest of the album.
Black Cat is the first single off their much-anticipated follow up album to Outlands. Masterfully produced by Dan Grech-Marguerat who has worked with the likes of The Kooks and Lana Del Ray to name a few, Black Cat is a crisp celebration of Britpop and acid rock. Layered guitars provide a ‘1960s London aura washed over a simple but effective rock riff you can dance to.
With just the right amount of reverb added to Nic Mckenzie’s vocals, DSA have picked up exactly where they left off with Outlands. And with the new album release date to be announced soon, I’ve got a deep anticipatory tingle in my loins.
Although perhaps the wrong time of year to have discovered this summer themed gem, now defunct Adelaide rockers The Daylight Baves have put together something really special in ‘Summer At Last’.
Psychedelic rock is really making a resurgence in the Australian music scene, and ‘Summer At Last’ really justifies this rediscovered popularity. Loaded with rich swirling guitars and driving rhythms, the hazy vocals of Dan Beacom really help add to the tracks laid back vibe. ‘Summer At Last’ just delivers its message little more punch and with a bit more swagger than many of the other bands out there, perhaps channeling the recent successes of fellow purveyors of psychedelica Deep Sea Arcade. Point is, ‘Summer At Last’ is a freaking awesome tune.
They may have just disbanded, but be sure to check out the new two man band ‘Kids With Teeth’ put together from the remnants of The Daylight Braves.
