Grey Watson releases new 60s inspired single Radical Passenger.
Garage-blues guru and troubadour of spicy guitar jaunts Grey Watson treated fans to his latest single Radical Passenger today.
This track has a strong 60s vibe, in particular, the comfy-yet-not experimentalism of Pet Sounds or Strawberry Fields-era Beatles. The psychedelic vocal harmonies and maddening synths here clash head first with simple-sounding melodies and teasing drum parts.
The deceptive lo-fi style of Radical Passenger gives way to subtle pads and the fuzziest of bass noises making this a full, warm sounding song. These build to a crescendo in the final third that features a guitar solo that Bryan May would probably steal and pass off as his own.
It might be the warped spirit that has warped out malleable minds but this has a feeling, admittedly a tenuous one, a bit like a Christmas song. This, of course, might entirely be projection on our part but fuck it, the song is so good we'll probably be playing it loads between now and December 25th.
Watson is currently putting the finishing touches to a new album due out early next year.
