Norway-based band, Gold Celeste, has championed psych-pop as we know it. They've been on my radar following 2019 album, The Gentle Maverick, a lo-fi production with '70s nostalgic bite. Now preparing for the upcoming, May 22nd release of their Common Ground EP, they give listeners a taste of what to expect on the project with "Eye of the Storm."
Let me tell ya, this track is the musical embodiment of a long car ride through the mountains during the early summertime. I was doing this exact thing when "Eye of the Storm" came on my S*otify. Windows down and sunglasses on, my mind started to daydream immediately. And that's exactly what this song is: dreamy.
Take your mind off of things. As TImothy Leary would say, tune in and drop out.
