“Earlier this year, Welsh singer-songwriter Cate Le Bon paired up with psych rock extraordinaire Tim Presley of White Fence to form DRINKS. “It has one mouth, one set of lungs, one mind, and four legs,” says their press release. Trippy, right? Psychedelics are dope. And speaking of how fun psychedelics are, Noisey is premiering the group’s new video for “Laying Down Rock,” a bouncy, lo-fi track with a twisted video that matches its bizarre tone.”
Check it out below:
The single is available as a limited 7″ with the B-side ‘I Could Loot You’ here.
“The Cardiff-LA pairing might be creatively equal, but the sound they make is beautifully out of balance.“
MOJO — ★★★★
“The end result is something that’s freaky and funky, as rigorously expensive as it is gleefully entertaining.“
“There are Forays into krautrock, pastoral psychedelia and trashy garage rawk, but never quite as you’d expect them…Confusion is rife on ‘Hermits on Holiday’, but it’s strangely intoxicating.”
Loud & Quiet
“There’s so much to love on this album: on the press release it’s pitched by Presley and Le Bon as “a solo project, not a collaboration… one mouth, one set of lungs, one mind and four legs”
“a naggingly catchy piece of psychedelic folk-pop”
The 405 — 8/10
