New York garage rock band The Mystery Lights have shared the first single from their upcoming self-titled debut album. Listen to "Follow Me Home" above, courtesy of Wick Records' SoundCloud page.
Elements of late '60s psychedelia are sprinkled with hypnotic distorted riffs and a backwards-recorded guitar solo, colorful keyboards, and a swirling melody. The song is very reminiscent of U.K. rock band The Spencer Davis Group's 1967 tune "I'm a Man."
Guitarist Mike Brandon spoke with Rolling Stone about working with Wick Records, a new rock imprint of Daptone Records:
The fact that they are venturing into other genres is exciting because everything they do, they do it right... Real deal, all analog, all tape, there's not one computer in the studio whatsoever and they do everything live. Their approach to recording is exactly what we would hope for in a record label. They are able to truly capture that pure, timeless sound that we love, and the label is run by the best people.
The album is scheduled to be released on June 24, 2016 via WICK Records. Pick it up on Amazon.
