Trawlin’ for new music is great and all, but who doesn’t love a discovery that just falls out of the sky and lands in their lap? Aussies Foreign/National DM’d us this hooky, hallucinogenic rock gem on Twitter last week – a track that has illuminated every commute journey and slow afternoon since.
Imagine a love-in between modern psych gods Tame Impala and the equally brilliant Unknown Mortal Orchestra, which is built around the kind of ice-cool bassline you’d expect to hear from the Arctic‘s post-transformation from semi-shy Sheffieldians into rock juggernaut. That’s ‘Pacific Cruise’.
Brace yourselves, the Melbourne fivesome’s latest offering is a proggy, but refrain-packed, piece of odd pop that’ll swim around your head for weeks to come.
