Fans of indie music or that golden era of ’70s psychedelia-infused rock will likely enjoy Khartoum. The London-based trio released their sophomore EP “Some Days” earlier this year and it shows off their ability to craft songs that feel both old and new simultaneously. Khartoum cites Wolf Alice and Sunflower Bean as modern influences but says Primal Scream and Death From Above 1979 are just as important to their rock DNA. For me, that means leary swagger as the groove and guitars slide around the speakers and a pinch of punk to spice things up a little. That’s exactly what the band does though, with a particular penchant for very strong chorus riffs.
“Some Days” is the title track taken from that 4 track EP released in June. It puts me in the mood for T-Rex or bands like Syd Arthur that mould together 70’s rock with modern-day production. Enjoy the lead track below. For more information on Khartoum, visit their website.
