Gateway Drugs are back with the follow up to their 2015 LP ‘Magick Spells (Dine Alone) with a new record ‘PSA’. From it they’ve shared a new track Wait (Medication), which the band say is about “Falling in love with madness. When sustenance is stolen and your vice becomes your friend, your lover. Romanticization of loneliness and despair. The delight of debauchery and the consequences of excess.”
Sitting somewhere near the likes of My Bloody Valentine and Brian Jonestown, but also sounds that float close to (at points) Gomez and Primal Scream at their most grainy and raw, Wait is this shuffling, attractive, at times muscular slice of psych / shoegaze, and it’s one that demands repeated listens.
