70s Psych Rock

Brighton’s prodigal son 8udDha bl0od returns with his latest vintage psych-rock storm, ‘O’

Brighton-based artist 8udDha bl0od can always be counted on to cook up a psychedelic, largely reminiscent-less storm with his new material. That is exactly what you will melt into when you hit play on his recently released single, ‘O’.

The mostly instrumental garage psych rock track is infused with sunset-strip-style-sleaze. It is guaranteed to be a  hit with any fans of King Gizzard, the Oh Sees, The Mars Volta and John Dwyer. The vintage guitars may send a few hazy postcards from the 70s in the intro and the former verses, but as the track gears up for the outro, a contemporary no-wave-Esque protestive punk attitude starts to bleed through and leaves you utterly transfixed.

The Walking Trees have made their psychedelically despondent alt-rock debut with ‘SOUTHSIDE aLIVE!’

Racking up over 10k streams and garnering major airplay with a debut release is the dream for many aspiring artists, The Walking Trees first single ‘SOUTHSIDE aLIVE! is equally as ethereal.

By channelling post-punk despondency vocally, infusing Depeche Mode-style atmosphere and exuding frenetic Black Keys-style blues through the guitars and keys, SOUTHSIDE aLIVE! drips with Marlon Brando-level cool.

The Frank Zappa-Esque. Spoken word verse was so much more than a nod to an icon, the serpentine canter of the poetry is utterly transfixing as it affirms the amount of artistic intellect behind The Walking Trees sound which carries reminiscence from everyone from Gorillaz to the Cramps.

The Walking Trees is everything a modern alt-rock act should be. From their image to their experimental intrigue, everything points in the direction of success for The Walking Trees. With their forthcoming single due for release in late February, they are well-worth having on your radar.

You can check out the official music video which premiered on January 23rd via YouTube.
