RIYL: Syd Barrett, Kevin Ayers, The Babe Rainbow, PAINT
Label: Mexican Summer
Even though their instaclassic 2012 debut LP catapulted the band into the forefront of the surf psych scene of the last decade, Allah-Las have worked hard at avoiding that pigeonhole at all costs. Traces of Byrds-influenced jangly guitar licks could be found on 2014’s Worship the Sun, but for the most part, Allah-Las appear uninterested in treading the same territory.Â Los Angeles is still their muse, but their influences are meandering through different avenues of the vast psychedelic landscape.
Newest single In the Air is a psych collage, drawing from Paisley Underground-tinged guitar tones and vocal harmonies, the off-kilter experimentalism of Flying Nun’s golden era as well as the playful surrealism from late 60s pop outliers like Kevin Ayers and Syd Barrett.
