Cactus Haus – “Sloth Brain”


“Sloth Brain” is a moody track from Cactus Haus, a band from South Wales. Nonchalant guitars and vocals are quick to establish a feel in the realm of Demarco-esque slacker-rock, reminding of “Ode to Viceroy” specifically. An interesting, psych-friendly turn occurs just prior to the two-minute mark, with more present guitar distortion prevailing in the second half. “Sloth Brain” plays primarily with a repeating, hypnotic structure, though it fits the shrug-friendly vibes of this release well. I’m looking forward to hearing more from this act.

“Sloth Brain” and other memorable tracks from this month can also be streamed on the updating Obscure Sound’s ‘Best of June 2019’ Spotify playlist.
