London’s Chemistry Set (30 years) and Fruits De Mer (10) both celebrate milestone anniversary’s this year, so it’s only fitting one of Fruits De Mer’s most popular acts celebrate the occasion with this exclusive single. The top side is a swirling maelstrom of pop psychedelia that features fuzzy Farfisa, martial skin pounding, anthemic harmonies and shoutalong vocals all captured inside phased electronics to capture a full-on party atmosphere.

The flip is more of a bluesy swamp stomp, with tablas, Indian percussion, mellotron, and flailing acoustic 12-strings all adding a Pied Piper vibe. I’d follow these guys anywhere! Happy anniversary!
