Ahead of the release of their sophomore album, For Use and Delight, Nashville’s Promised Land Sound give some indication of what we can expect with the rustic psych-rock/folk of Push and Pull (All the Time).
It opens with these woozy chords, before it dances along, full of harmonies and the edgy yearn of frontman Joe Scala. There’s something of the hazy, late summer about the track, as the sun goes down on the last barbecue of the year (certainly in Sheffield, that moments passed…) as the guitar lines intertwine with everything that’s going on, and don’t get me started on how beautifully melodic the bassline is (but it is). As it plays out, at least for the second half of the record, so we lose the vocal and instead get carried away on a every growing folky, psychey wig out. Yes, I used the phrase wig out.
For Use And Delight is out 10/2 via Paradise of Bachelors.
