BANANAGUN

Australia is the World’s epicentre as far as new psychedelic music is concerned. It’s not even worth debating anymore, it’s pure, unadulterated fact. It all started back in the late noughties with Tame Impala, and since then we’ve had the wondrous sounds of amongst others, King Gizzard & The Lizard Wizard, Pond, The Murlocs, Babe Rainbow, ORB, Psychedelic Porn Crumpets, Baked Beans, Pipe-Eye, Mt. Mountain, Beaches – and now, Bananagun.

The Melbourne five piece mix late 60’s psych-pop with tickles of afrobeat and fuzz rock. On first listen I could hear vague influences like the West Coast Pop Art Experimental Band, the psych-poppiness of The Troggs, the rhythmic repetition and fervent energy of Fela Kuti and the hippy trippy tropicalia of Os Mutantes. It’s a great retro blend of psych styles and the band exude an enigmatic playfulness that lifts them well beyond any notions psychedelic pastiche.

Earlier this year the band released their eponymous debut three track EP, containing the tracks, Do Yeah, Top Cat and Crane In The Tiger’s Mouth. It’s a cracking listen and I’m hoping they’re hard at work on their debut album as I’m itching to hear more. Check out the three tunes from the band’s debut EP below:
