Cult Merseyside psych heroes The Wicked Whispers have been away for two years, time spent honing and refining their music.
Those lysergic tendencies linger, but at the centre there's a renewed focus on melody, on the way that music and lyrics can interact.
New double A-side single 'If I Set You Free' / 'Zodiac Girl' is the first sign of their progress, demonstrating where the band might go next.
As it turns out, it's rather good. The Wicked Whispers' rise up into a hallucinogenic whirlwind on 'If I Set You Free', the melting guitars set alongside those crisp vocals.
Clash is able to premiere the visuals, and you can check them out below.
