Psych-Rock ist spätestens seit dem Durchbruch von Tame Impala das große Ding. Mit den Hookworms hat nun auch Großbritannien eine Antwort auf die australische Rockband gefunden. Insbesondere der achtminütige Eröffnungssong „Away/Towards“ ist gleich eine Ansage, mit denen die Hookworms auf sich aufmerksam machen:

* The best “new” artist / band right now?

MB: My favourite band from the last year or so has been Vision Fortune. Amazing on record, abrasively hypnotic live, and they have a great visual element to everything they do.

JW: Joanna Gruesome or Sealings. Both bands are made up of really nice people and absolutely shred it live. Joanna Gruesome make great jangly punk music and look like they have the most fun when they’re playing live. Sealings are super loud, industrial and intense, completely relentless live. They’re good dudes and we play with them whenever we’re in Brighton.

* Your favourite song about rebellion/revolution?
