The English merseybeat trio Ayawaska released their début single The Ride yesterday.
You can almost hear the valves starting to glow as the warming analogue sounds of The Ride floats in to the room.
The hazy veil that the material sits behind gives the track a psychedelic tinge in which the listener can delightedly indulge as the trio offer a just over three and a half minutes of breezy music that raises a smile and a sense of well-being.
Drawing influences from the ’60s and ’70s The Ride doesn’t sound like a pale version of what has become before, rather, a welcome signpost of what is in store and Ayawaska are most assuredly a band I look forward to hearing more of in due course.
The Ride is available on Amazon.*
