With all this perfect weather Southern California is having, it’s only fitting that bands are starting to release music to match the mood.
Los Angeles-based [lastfm link_type="artist_info"]White Arrows[/lastfm], who are headlining the KROQ Locals Only Showcase March 27, have given a wonderful snippet of what to expect from their self-proclaimed “psychotropical” sound on their debut EP.
“Fireworks Of The Sea” is awash with synths and driven by a steady tribal beat. The [lastfm link_type="artist_info"]Fools Gold[/lastfm]-style guitar work and calm, cooing vocal from singer Mickey Church makes a perfect blend of surreal and serene – easy, breezy danceable weirdness just in time for Spring.
White Arrows sound has gradually nudged their sound into a more confident, psychedelic realm yet danceable place over the last year. Their music has naturally progressed into this “psychotropical” sound, a label the five-piece band told us about a few months before – the recent bridge between White Arrows style being the Locals Only favorite “Get Gone”.
After a making the rounds at SXSW in Austin, TX, White Arrows will be headlining the Locals Only Showcase Mar. 27 at the Roxy, along with [lastfm link_type="artist_info"]Kraddy[/lastfm], [lastfm link_type="artist_info"]The Stone Foxes[/lastfm] and [lastfm link_type="artist_info"]Honeydrip[/lastfm]. Their almost-finished debut EP Fireworks Of The Sea will be out April 3 from Votiv Music. (Peep the trippy artwork below.)
