Forlorn sunshine psych is a thing, and you’d better believe it. Its purveyors are Night Dials, a band of garage rockers who aren’t actually made out of paper mache but like for it seem that way. ‘I’ve Done More Things’, the first of two tunes off their new 7”, is basically the band grinning about how grumpy they are at their loved one having a new boyfriend. It’s a classic trope for the ages played out over twinkling guitar, a super sparse bridge and a throwback sixties hook, all underproduced for that archaic quality -- it is fine.
On the flip, Night Dials actually sound more like a band than a nostalgia trip, pushing their psych through a lens quite like Deerhunter’s, with a heart-melting melody flitting between their verses before they find a sick ass riff to rest on. The song barely gets going, which is its best trait: its brief hook doesn’t feel overperformed, instead given only seconds to breathe. If they keep on this hype rather than complaining about an ex-girlfriend, who is probably in the right, then I’m on board with this band.
