I’m finding it impossible to see how anyone with a penchant for guitar-driven tracks wouldn’t adore the Wrong Party’s stand out single Mystic Woman from their 2018 self-titled album.
The prelude riff sets you up to almost expect just another psychedelic revival track, but Mystic Woman is so much more. The chaos that they pour into the progression of the track will leave artists such as Thee Oh Sees envious. If Dr. Frankenstein did 60’s psychedelic revival, I’m pretty sure this is what it would sound like, because they’ve created an absolute monster. Each of the ten tracks off the album are as raucously decadent as the next. And of course, no review of Mystic Woman could be complete without mentioning the thunderous bassline as it ties around the scatty antagonistic guitar bites.
