When it comes to psychedelia, the UK has its own style. London-based Messenger mix up psychedelia with Prog to create a languid, chilled out but complex sound. Recently released video for Dear Departure showcases the talents of Khaled Lowe, Barnaby Maddick and Jaime Gomez Arellano, who also produced their debut album Illusory Blues.
It’s a wonderful track that keeps on bubbling away for the duration, and the effects are special – bubbles within profiles is a particular favourite bit of mine!
The album is out now on Svart Records.
