Heavy Feather and the Magic Word – “Jungle Cat”


Hailing from Brooklyn, Heavy Feather and the Magic Word unveil a blistering psych-rock sound on their new single “Jungle Cat.”

Rousing guitar blasts drive to a spacey contemplation as the vocals emerge, showing shades of George Harrison in the vocals’ hazy spaciousness here. The track’s escalation never lets go from there, centering around the fervent “jungle cat, don’t you understand?” sequence, assuming seamlessly into a more hard-rocking psychedelic splendor. “Jungle Cat” is a consuming psych-rock success from Heavy Feather and the Magic Word.

This and other tracks featured this month can be streamed on the updating Obscure Sound’s ‘Best of February 2023’ Spotify playlist.

The track is also featured in the genre-based, best-of Spotify compilation Emerging Psychedelic Rock.
