Hairy Psychedelic Dutchmen DeWolff release their latest album on the 4thof May, an album that needs to be heard!
The trio, comprising of Pablo van de Poel on Guitar, Luka van de Poel on Drums and Robin Piso on Keyboard, have dropped eight albums before this nostalgic masterpiece, having hit the rock scene in 2007.
From Geleen, Netherlands, this time round these three have created something to wind your mind back to a time when Psychedelic Blues was king.
Their new album ‘Thrust’ is loaded with some punchy, funky and outright awesome tracks. Hints of Led Zeppelin, Pink Floyd, The Eagles and Budgie run welcomingly through the 11 tracks with ease and listening pleasure. Sit back, close your eyes and imagine it was the 70’s all over again.
Tracks like ‘Big Talk’and ‘California Burning’, the latter having an opening similar to Budgie’s Breadfan, are surely destined to be hits. Both are instant likers and offer upbeat rifts, relaxed melodies, and catchy lyrics. Its no wonder they’ve been on tour with the likes of the Black Keys and Depp Purple, they’re the perfect fit. However, in a time where Psych Rock isn’t big on the scene means they stand out from the crowd, and rightly so.
Other tracks to note on this awesome album are ‘Freeway Flight’, which screams Woodstock, makes you feel your spinning round Catskill Mountains with the 400,000 other hippy loving festival goers, ‘Swain’ gives a country Zeppelin mush up feel and ‘Tragedy – Not Toady’, a track Fleetwood Mac would be proud of.
That said these chaps have their own take on what was once a genre with a mass following. DeWolff are clearly here to bring that genre back to the forefront of the music scene as the resurrecters of Psychedelic Rock!
‘Thrust’ is something that you can unwind to and frantically dance to. Its both relaxing and uplifting while giving you exposure to what it must have been like when the likes of Robert Plant and his band of legendary rockers hit the stage.
Kaleidoscopic, nostalgic, vibrant and full of merriment and hitting the digital shelves this Friday the 4thof May
With every album, comes a tour, and you can get to see this Dutch triumvirate at the Black Heart, London on the 15thof May, the only UK date thus far. However, they have a heavy European roster, visit their website for more information: www.dewolff.nu
