Format Info


The A-side is a psych-jangler very reminiscent of groups coming out of the Los Angeles and Bay areas during late-66 early 67, the song features Paul’s usual social-critique style interwoven in flourishes of reverb and jangle-heavy guitars, Prunes-esque tremolo and Farfisa organ. The B-side is a lighter affair; a sincere beat-pop ballad inspired by Nederbeat and Scandinavian groups such as The Mascots, The Sages and The Motions or even Scotland’s The Poets.
