Australian psych-rockers Sons Of Zöku show a hypnotic sound on new track “Luz.” A resonating sitar effect lingers amidst the dazed vocals and dazzling guitars. Aesthetically, George Harrison would be proud. 02:58 is a particularly fine moment, with bursting acoustics and wordless vocals showing beautiful alignment as the track glides into a warming close. “Luz” shows that this psych-friendly trio clearly has a firm grasp of their hypnotic stylistic pursuit, while also touting a consuming melodic fervor.
“Luz” and other memorable tracks from this month can also be streamed on the updating Obscure Sound’s ‘Best of January 2020’ Spotify playlist.
