As evidenced by a series of sublime singles thus far, Norwegian psych-pop trio Great News do a superb trade in dreamy psychedelic pop, blended with big choruses and catchy hooks.
Things are set to get even better still, as the trio have announced their intention to release their much anticipated debut album this autumn. Ahead of it’s release, we’ve been afforded two tantalising tasters in singles ‘Never Get My Love’ and ‘Wonderfault’. ‘Never Get My Love’ is a bass-led beauty that sees Even Kjelby’s commanding-yet-weary vocal croon wrapped in a heady swirl of psychedelic flourishes to outlandish tropical textures, it’s an irresistible blend of cheerful melodies, steel drums and sparkling guitars that will dispel those Autumnal wearies. Propelled by bass guitar gallops through frazzled electronics, ‘Wonderfault’ is a colorful, hazy and adventure in cheerful and dreamy psychedelic pop, blended with big choruses and catchy hooks. Two sublime examples of how Great News produce some real catchy tunes with great effect, and why their debut album is one to certainly keep an eye out for.
You can listen to ‘Never Get My Love’ and ‘Wonderfault’ below. Keep an eye out for their debut album Wonderfault, which is out in late October/early November.
