What makes music ‘PSYCHEDELIC’? Is it the wavy jangle of the guitar; the irresistable groovy baseline or the tribal beat of the drums?
Nowadays, the Psych music spectrum is so vast and diverse that we can mention Tame Impala and Black Sabbath in the same sentence. Here at Nambucca we plan on celebrating that variety with our new monthly event with gigmit called SIKE!
To kick-off we have four amazing acts all bringing a different element of Psychedelia to London:
The Spanish Infanta
Unique blend of garage, surf and psychedelia wrapped into a Lo-fi sound – all delivered with the hard edge & determination of punk rock.
The rapid sludgy guitar driven riffs battle the catchy drum beats fueling a new collaboration of many different genres. We love all types and music and believe it comes through in our soon to be released on 7″ Vinyl through Easter Islands Records. Fans of Thee Oh Sees, Coachwhips and Black Lips, everyone can bogie down to our percussive sound !
Inspired by the sounds of psychedelia, surf, and garage rock, Dazy Crown combines a retro lo-fi sound with fresh rhythms, simple melodies, and funky vibes.
The boys are just coming off of a busy year after going out on their first tour, preparing their debut EP, and supporting other bands and artists by the likes of The Big Moon, Declan McKenna, Trudy & The Romance, Racing Glaciers, and Fake Laugh. As well, their past few singles have received regular radio airplay from BBC Introducing, Amazing Radio, and various other smaller stations around the UK and the globe.
EYRE LLEW are a UK based trio who specialize in ambient rock. The band have been together for a little over two years releasing an impressive nine singles in this short time with their début album recording on the edge of release behind the scenes.
Previous single ‘Fero’ has been streamed over 90,000+ times on Spotify and with them playing various festivals this year including; Outlines, 2Q, FarmFest, Y Not, Focus Wales, Dot to Dot, Hockley Hustle, Handmade and more. Due to their quick and steady progression many well placed music writers and promoters are labelling them as the ones to watch in 2017.
NIRIS are an instrumental duo, performing Spanish Guitar, Ambient music, Blues and Jazz
Nick Engel is a versatile yet classically trained guitarist who has been gigging on the London music scene for many years. After doing session work with various vocalists ranging from pop to soul, and performed lounge jazz regularly at restaurants, before being asked to sit in as resident guitarist at an East London hip hop night. Here he got into live sampling which he started to use regularly, creating beats and self producing 2 trip hop LPs. He and Chris met at a local music store and jammed together on a few tracks, and then decided to form Niris.
