Psychadelic rock has come a long way through time, from it's prominence with acts like Grateful Dead and Jefferson's Airplane, to 90's Texas rockers Butthole Surfers to now. Nashville-based Psych-rockers have done a great job adapting the sound to modern tastes while holding the core elements of the long-standing genre in place. As they gear up for the release of their EP Uno on May 26th, the act shares with us today their lead single "Tumbleweed." This single is a pristine mixture of lackadaisical melodies, sultry vocals, moving bass lines, and an atmosphere that disorients and delights the listener at the same time. Their sound is robust and rich in influences from past purveyors of the genre, while incorporating modern synths and a groovy vibe that will transport you into the headspace of it's creators. Take a listen to the track below and be on the look out for their EP out May 26th. Sol Cat will be playing Bonnaroo Music and Arts Festival, Austin City Limits, as well as heading on a full tour, so be sure to check them out if they are in your area.
In addition to the single's release, Sol Cat is releasing the a music video to coincide with "Tumbleweed." It is a low-key voyage through California with plenty of crossfades and slow-paced shots that pair perfectly with the overall feel of the song. Check it out below.
