AA Loves: The Laurels
In continuing with the recent stream of killer up and coming bands from down under comes The Laurels.
This quartet from Sydney has an amazing psychedelic shoegaze dream pop sound that draws your mind into their acid fueled mind bending melodies. The influence of The Beatles and My Bloody Valentine is clear with their catchy pop lyrics, pedal effects, and distorted noise guitars. You could file them away somewhere between a radically more psychedelic Beatles or Deerhunter at their most lucid.
Check out their debut 7” Art School Girl and Wandering Star, available for free download here, and keep an eye out for the upcoming release of their first EP. I have a feeling that 2011 will have some big things in store for The Laurels.
