Radar Blip: The Band in Heaven

Florida psych rockers Band in Heaven hit our radar recently with the excellent HoZac seven-inch (stream it below). It’s the first we’re hearing from these guys, and we’re impressed with how effortlessly they shift from raw, surging shoe gaze to drowsier, more atmospheric material. There’s a bit of Black Rebel and some Black Angels here, even a bit of Slowdive, so look out for persistent riffing, psychedelic ambience and affected vocals with a rounded low-end. Stream the four-song HoZac seven-inch below (two of the songs are available for free download) and look out for Band in Heaven at SXSW in March and Austin Psych Fest in April.
