Whilst a lot of us seemed to use lockdown to bake bread, Wednesday’s Child were busy writing woozy and psychedelic new music for us all such as their new single: ‘Nearby Nowhere’.
This latest offering seems to blur the line between pop and psychedelic – it’s a wonderful hybrid of both that works perfectly. It was definitely a bold, experimental move from the duo that seriously paid off. From the start of the song there’s a very ‘70s feel to the music and the vocals. It’s an immensely bright and upbeat track with a swing rhythm to it.
The Brian May-esque guitar riffs are definitely a welcome addition to this release, as they help provide that retro feeling, and when paired with the percussion section we get this whimsically giddy but outstanding effort.
Wednesday’s Child are another duo who show that you don’t need a ton of band members to write truly stunning music.
