It may be low-key, but there’s something rather mysterious and alluring about ‘Bird Above The Bath’ from Lancaster’s NIGHT PALMS. Singer Fin Kay-Lavelle’s baritone croon recalls that of legendary Doors frontman Jim Morrison, while the downtempo rock groove dwells in the same territory as the Chili Peppers at their most restrained.

We’re unsurprised to learn that the four-piece are also fans of Timber Timbre and Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds, especially with the psych-tinged atmosphere of the former and quieter elegant blues of the latter’s ‘The Lyre of Orpheus’ looming large over this lackadaisical cut.
