Psych pop Perth group, led by Nick Allbrook and featuring Tame Impala’s Jay Watson, have always done things their own way. And their seventh album The Weather, which follows 2015’s brilliant “Man, It Feels Like Space Again”, shows there’s no sign of that changing. Produced by Tame Impala frontman Kevin Parker, it’s a concept album, not completely about Perth, but focusing on all the weird contradictory things that make up a lot of colonial cities around the world.
‘Sweep Me Off My Feet’, the first single off it, shows they’re still gloriously, fantastically and unashamedly out there – creating their own unique brand of warped and wonky psych. It’s all a joy to listen to – and so much fun live.
