RIYL: sci-fi psych, cosmic lounge, space porn
Label: Beyond Beyond is Beyond
Right out of the gate, Drakkar Nowhere’s first single Higher NowÂ thrusts its aural pelvis right into your ear cavities, gyrating along a lustyÂ bass groove and a scifiÂ lounge vibe worthy of any space porn soundtrack or Playboy After Dark pool party. Â The vocal harmonies take it to psychedelic territories, evoking early 70s Pink Floyd as they chant “Higher Now” and send you into the cosmos. Â Three minutes in, though, the track shifts to a sunny coast echoingÂ Smiley Smile-era Beach Boys vocal arrangements. Â There’s even elements of early Lee ‘Scratch’ Perry reverberating on the outer guitar layers. Â This thing cooks, man. Â Insta buy!
Beyond Beyond is Beyond has 225 crystal clear vinyl variants for the New Yorkers’ debut, but only 100 are available on their bandcamp page. Â Get it while ya can, folks. Â Once these guys start trickling through the music forums, these are gonna get snatched up quick.
225/500. 100 available here.
Includes digital pre-order of Drakkar Nowhere (PRE-ORDER). You get 1 track now (streaming via the free Bandcamp app and also available as a high-quality download in MP3, FLAC and more), plus the complete album the moment it's released.
