Coming out of San Francisco, The Spyrals have introduced its neo-psychadelic, guitar heavy, all encompassing sound into the indie world. Immediately explosive, the self titled debut album shows immense promise. With a lot of psychedelic music often monotonous, The Spyrals bring back the 1970′s rock feeling–lava lamp and all. While updating their sound to the more indie mainstream “garage rock” genre, takes the power of Iggy Pop but uses it in a more Joy Division-esque sound, bringing the controlled raucous noise to an audible and listenable album. To be honest, I feel like I should be stoned while listening to this music (how fitting for a San Francisco band, as well). They bring a fresh outlook on the neo-psychadelic music, updating a stale genre that many musicians have tried to conquer but not many could succeed. There is great hope in The Spyrals, with constant accolades on their live performances, they have allowed themselves to take the genre by full force and perhaps lead it into a whole new direction. With long winded songs like “Lonely Eyes” and “Evil Kind”, the music is never stagnant, always progressing either to become louder or to hook the listener in a completely different direction. They take the rock’n roll of the past and make something new out of it, an increasingly hard thing to achieve, but seemingly easy done by these guys. As they say on their Bandcamp, they play rock’n roll. Their debut album is out on Mock Records now, they also have tons of EP’s and singles floating around the internet or their website.
