Seattle-based outfit Wall of Ears – comprised of Chris Lott, Tony Pettigrew, Bryant Hammonds, Derrick Wright & Jon Ruseski – introduced us to their sublime and subtly seductive brand of psychedelic pop with single ‘Floating of the Line’, back in May.
Following on from those wonderfully lush undulations, Wall of Ears have returned with another premier piece of West Coast psych-pop pleasure in the shape of ‘We Go Outside’. The new single postures itself in a similar space as early Franz Ferdinand but donned with a psych-tinged shroud. Staccato guitars join disco rhythms, stuttering drum, splashings synth and cymbals to allow the rich, warm, honeyed croon resonate completely. Having released their latest album Hello Beautiful Nothing back in April, ‘We Go Outside’ provides a tidy reminder of what’s in store on that record.
