Released on April 22nd 2017, Strangeways is the new EP from Minneapolis psychedelic rock band, Driftwood Pyre.
The psychedelic rock sound of Driftwood Pyre is warm & comforting like a childhood blanket. Shatter Star is hauntingly melodic giving off a really chilled vibe that sits so well in the mind whereas Into Blue has a more upbeat rockiness that only gets the attention with some trippy guitar moments at the end.
The EP heads back to the more chilled out style with the slow & atmospheric Protozoan, the vocals & guitar melody leading you on a relaxing & catchy journey of soft rock.
The penultimate track, The Tide’s bassy intro leads into a up-tempo rhythm before the title track sees the EP out with a devilishly hook heavy sensual rock song. A finale that gets the body moving, the hips shaking & the feet tapping along.
