Hooky psychonauts Sunboy are the latest in a long line of bands drinking deep from Ken Kesey’s electric Kool-aid. The Video for their stand out track ‘Highway Screaming’ gained cult status, and a lot of journalistic pawing, a few months back, and got us wondering what LSD laced wilderness these long haired freaks had crawled out of and how, exactly, we could get there ourselves.

They’ve only released three tracks but, between them, they’ve showcased a flair for big riffs, woozy, punch-drunk melodies and darkly compelling vocals all tied up in a thick psychedelic fog.

The psych scene may already have it’s crossover heroes, Tame Impala and Foxygen, but Sunboy are making a compelling case for pole position in 2014.
