Between Tame Impala, Jagwar Ma, and now I’lls, Australia is becoming one of the major players in the indie rock since, and in the process, making up tenfold for any damage done by AC/DC. The Melbourne trio have released their new single, off their upcoming 21 May EP release, A Warm Reception.
The seemingly self-prophesizing title is led by the excellent new single “Plans Only Draw”. The band wears their influences on their sleeve, with Radiohead’s classic “Weird Fishes/Arpeggi” being a major calling card. The hypnotic, effect-laden guitar line recalls that song’s latter half, while Simon Lam’s vocals appear highly acrobatic over a skittering drum beat, while also following the lead of Tame Impala and Jagwar Ma with mostly indecipherable lyrics.
