There’s a scene that has developed down under. In Australia and New Zealand. In rock music if there’s a scene happening, well that’s the place to be. Sorry, I love that term “scene”: A band does something really original and soon other similar bands are producing tones and musical themes of a like variety. It’s not really copying someone else’s musical sound, it’s more like a natural evolution of that scene. And it’s often difficult to pint point exactly where the origin lies because it all arises mutually.
I’ve posted about an Australia band called Tame Impala and a New Zealand/American band called Unknown Mortal Orchestra. Now I’d like to share another Australian band called King Gizzard & The Lizard Wizard. I really dig these bands I keep hearing these days. They have a distinct vocal sound and a definite psychedelic element, which is what I hear with this rock music coming out of Australian and New Zealand.
