We didn’t actually, but that’s fine. You Said Strange, the newest paid-up members of the Fuzz Club, cut their debut LP with Dandy Warhol Peter Holmström after the bands toured together back in 2015. No prizes for guessing who Salvation Prayer sounds like. Fortunately for you it’s about time we had some more Dandies in our lives.

7/10 Robin Staff review, 11 July 2018

The aesthetic of psych pop is so strong on this one that one of the Bandcamp Supporters for ‘Salvation Prayer’ has Hookworms album art as their avatar. Through this alone I know this one’s gonna be a hard rockin’, sun-blissin’ jam doozy. And it is. With just pants and a snare to his name, You Said Strange creates a full band record out of sweet guitar melodies, waspy wah and Very Happy To Be Here rhythms. It’s psychedelic, baby.

Some real nice songs on this. Can you ask for more? I would argue You Said Strange are best when they’re inviting love and lushness into their lives, swimming in lovely guitar tones and simmering chants on “Brain” or opening several hundred curtains at once on “Power House”, where vocals coalesce amidst languishing guitar chords for a very good chaos. I’m less inclined to listen back to the ominous “Get Out”, which suggests a darker, more devious version of a band who are clearly way more briefed to have a nice time.

Luckily they’re mostly making extremely chill and perfectly affable psych tunes. The noisy shredding of “Cold Crusader” is pushed way back as vocals lilt and guitars hum with distant feeling. It’s got that perfect calibration of feeling and season to it: the emotions are remote and the instrumentation is a bright, twenty degree day that keeps any stresses far way, blocked out by sunlight. It's not gonna change your world but 'Salvation Prayer' might brighten it up.
