If surf rock went psychedelic. That’s how I’d describe Worldcub, a group based in North Wales that likes to bring their Cymru side along for the ride. Worldcub have been making music for over a decade but in different guises and are influenced by Paul McCartney during his 70s/80s era and fellow DIY artists. They write, record and produce from a home studio aiming to bring the hypnotic side of psychedelic rock to the playful side of surf rock. If you are fans of Django Django or The Animal Collective, you’ll likely find happiness here.
‘Look Through The Keyhole’ is the lead song from their forthcoming album ‘Back to the Beginning’ which is on track for a 2023 release. A prelude EP ‘BTTB Vol 1’ is coming out on the 4th of November too, teeing up a song cycle and concept of reliving past lives. As for the single itself, it is a stompy jaunt of pizzicato organs, smooth psyche riffs and airy, disembodied vocals that sound like old folk tales. It’s one of those tracks that you don’t immediately jam to on first listen but gets stuck in your head afterwards. In a good way of course! Perfect for a 70s throwback to hippie times and happier times.
