Having just signed to Heavenly (Home of Temples etc), Seattle’s Night Beats culd be forgiven for getting a little self indulgent. And they’ll have to be, because new track Sunday Mourning is as indulgent a slice of guitar-music as we’ve seen this year. Wrapped up in wailing stratocaster squalls, and rice-shaker rhythms it’s as close to ‘cosmic wigout’ as they come.
If 2015 is to settle into the psyche as a year of norm-core and beige, Night Beats will thrash into the new year as an anomoly. Fans of King Gizzard & The Wizard Lizard, Goat and Wand take note.
