Sydney’s Deep Sea Arcade make a kind of echo-heavy, melodic psychedelic pop that recalls later Beatles or maybe mid-nineties Dandy Warhols; that is to say, when you listen to songs like “Girls” you have to try really hard not to really want to roadtrip out to some kind of sunny field and spin around. Why this is always the go-to image for ‘60s and ‘70s-inspired psych-rock we’re not sure, but it fits for Deep Sea Arcade – frontman Nic McKenzie’s voice and lyrics read like an echo-soaked modern-age re-up of any number of Woodstock heroes; meanwhile, his band effortlessly crafts a tight, massive soundscape of brilliant, soaring guitars. Helps that the track comes with a fantastic, hallucinatory video. We’re not sure when the band’s debut will be released stateside, but “Girls” should help to tide you over.
