The name Jay Watson probably doesn’t mean much to you on its own, but if I say he’s a member of both Australian psych-rock bands Tame Impala and Pond, then I bet you’re catching my drift.
Along with that, he has released the new single ‘Gemini’ under the moniker of GUM which runs along similar lines to his other bands. ‘Gemini’ sways more on the dream-pop side than the psych-rock, but lovers of both bands and the style in general will not be disappointed.
There’s more synth than you can shake a stick at and super-hazy vocals that float along the crest of this psychedelic wave of sound, as you would expect from one of the guys who brought you ‘Currents’ and ‘Man It Feels Like Space Again’. Proper good escapism music.
