Ever wished that Radiohead had a bit more of a kick? Well, that’s exactly what you get with the Austin, Texas based collective the Stan Laurels. They’ve infused a Thom Yorke approach to vocals with a muddy, reverberatingly tantalising orchestration of instrumentals that almost act as a TARDIS back to the 60’s when the general record buying population actually recognised the talent in bands such as the Beatles & Zombies. There are very few artists who can create soundscape built upon pure nostalgic catharsis but the Stan Laurels have cracked it with their multi-layered composition of Indie and Psychedelia. With their latest single Maybe the Stan Laurels created a futuristically anachronistic sound that will stick with you for long after it fades out. The rhythmic harmony contained within their latest track stands as testament to their melodic synergy. In short, it’s the perfect song to get excited about the summer to.
Maybe is the title track from the Stan Laurels 2018 album which will be available to download and stream from June 12th, 2018. In the meantime, check out the single via BandCamp & connect with the band via Facebook.
