The London based psych band Volleyball have returned with another barrage of shimmering psychedlia. Continuing their form of spaced out, warm tones that are delightfully energetic yet subtly mellow at the same time.
‘Paradisco’ eases the listener into their warm embrace, soothing sounds float through a bouncy melody. This atmosphere of calm builds till around the 1 minute mark until the band explode into action, guitars, synths and percussion charge out. Then, without a moment’s notice tranquility reigns, it’s a real rollercoaster of a track.
Interestingly the explosive element boasts Volleyball‘s ability to branch out, showing they’re more than an ethereal dreamscape band. In a moments notice, they can amp it up to 11 and take you on a real wild journey. The pace and atmosphere hit right and the unsuspecting energy is most welcome, I hope to see it more frequently with there releases.
