Watchmakers Are Illuminating

Manchester’s premier psychedelic rock ‘n’ rollers ‘The Watchmakers’ are about to release their new single on Loaded Soul Records.

This single smears towards you like a blood red stain – then the driving rhythms kick in  &  the thumping drum entices you onwards.

Other siren-like sounds snap and snarl … before a yellowing vocal looms out and heads straight for a buttery moon.

The soundscape on this is substantial – like being entertained inside a large yawning canyon.

But you can still make out the tiny icicles of small sound and the dinosaur bones of rhythm that sit between the echoing spaces. These salt and moan.

This is an incredible fare …  a huge altar …  laden with presumptuous mewings and groaning idolatry.
