The Age of Immunology
The psych quintet mask their heavenly notes of yearning behind a cosy shroud of lysergic-dipped gossamer pop.
Forging a sound that is both fresh and steeped in musical history is no easy task. Yet the multinational group have successfully mined a rich hauntological landscape to generate music that manages to appear eerily familiar whilst emblazoned with their own unique fingerprints. It’s indebted to a musical through-line that encompasses aspects of 1960’s Francophonic pop, psychedelia, krautrock, doused up vocals and a fat wedge of heaving grooves. Think Broadcast, Can, The United States of America, Stereolab, Death & Vanilla and Jane Weaver. But this still goes further than all of that. When it’s poppy, it’s infectiously hook-laden. When it’s digging into the frontal cortex, it’s burrowing deep, locking you in and swamping you with swirling atmospherics that transport to a place misremembered and homely. In short, it’s a trip.
