UPCOMING: Honeymooon

It’s hard not to mention any psych-rock act these days without alluding to a certain ubiquitous Australian act of the same genre – for argument’s sake, let’s call them Lame Gimpala. But there must be something in that antipodean water, because LA-based Aussies Aaron Shanahan and Benjamin Plant (aka Honeymooon, with the extra O) are certainly drinking from the same colourful cup.

Sure Stuck is a joyous, sunshine-soaked introduction to the band and their love of 60-70s psychadelia. It’s all happy vocal, squelching guitar and swirling synth, and – screw it – basically a cut that Tame Impala would be proud of.
