The Melbourne based band have come blasting through with their psychedelic single ‘Revolution Son’. The thumping release is taken from the bands forthcoming debut album, set for release 2021.
The follow up single from last year’s ‘Angkor Wat’ boasts the bands driving, psychedelic sound. Although it drifts in the Britpop genre it carries a more explosive sound.
‘Revolution Son’ lures the listener in with a sultry guitar that opens up to a pulsing bass. It’s not long before waves of psychedlia comes crashing towards the listener. A flurry of guitars cascade through, making an all encompassing sound. It’s a driving, almost Krautrock sound that is similar to Wooden Shjips and CAN.
This release proves that Shiva and the Hazards are more than another Britpop throwback band. They’re a musical machine that has plenty offer. The debut album is going to be a real expansive journey into their sound.
