New single: Hamjam, ‘Love’
Words by Scenewave Australia - Published on September 18, 2014
Hamjam are the latest export from Perth’s burgeoning psychedelic scene, home to Tame Impala, Pond, Nicholas Allbrook and more.
The group includes members of Gunns and The Growl, but Hamjam is particularly low-key, with a distinctely shoegaze droopiness.
“Love” is their most recent single, and it is one hazey, tripped-out journey through the land of lo-fi. Deliberately loose, the echoey vocals and wobbly guitars lay the foundation for the sleepily psychedelic track.
The track itself doesn’t really grow or change that much, allowing you to really sit back, relax and enjoy the sweet ride. It’s really interesting how something so simple, so not-exactly-compelling in terms of melody and rhythm, can keep you so hypnotised and intrigued for more than three minutes.
Hamjam’s self-titled debut EP will be released on October 10 via local label Pilerats
