The Laurels - "Sound System"

Sydney, Australia's The Laurels have an interesting and familiar sound. Their newest single, "Sound System," is a psychedelic blend of shoegaze. What's most interesting is it keeps the upbeat, cheerful sound of psychedelia with the almost dystopian moodiness of shoegaze. This truly creates a whole new sound while still feeling uncomfortably familiar. Singer Luke O'Farrell has this to say about the song:

"High rise apartments and rent prices loom large over this paean to a future dystopian city, the inhabitants of which are doomed to a lifetime of evenings spent in queues waiting to eat at fine dining restaurants after a round of putt putt golf. Sound System finds this group of part-time disc jockeys loading up their van with generators and loud speakers as they seek to reignite the street party."

You can watch the video for "Sound System" below. The song is currently available as a single on The Laurels's Bandcamp. For more on The Laurels, check them out on Facebook and Twitter.
