Originally from Rochester, New York, Maybird craft a gripping sound steeped in both psych-rock and more traditional, rootsy sectors. Such is evident on the excellent track “In Technicolor (For The First Time),” released today. Fuzzy guitars, a galloping bass, and lush synths comprise a very psych-forward arsenal. A soaring, twangy voice is accompanied by reflectively dreamy backing vocals — sounding like an enjoyably more hypnotic Camera Obscura. Especially as the percussion intensifies toward the conclusion, it’s easy to see why “In Technicolor (For The First Time)” is getting stuck in my head.
“In Technicolor (For The First Time)” and other memorable tracks from this month can also be streamed on the updating Obscure Sound’s ‘Best of December 2019’ Spotify playlist.
