Suddenly, psychedelia feels fresh, relevant again.
Sure, plenty of sonic warriors have kept the flame alive over the years, but in 2013 the sound, the vision of psychedelia feels strangely current.
Inspired by the likes of Syd Barrett, Brian Eno's early solo material, Neu! and more, London newcomers Telegram have only played a handful of live shows thus far.
Yet already hype is clinging on to their every move. Playing a spectacular live session for Marc Riley on 6Music, Telegram are now ready to unveil their debut single.
'Follow' is a tripped out, savage blast of psych-punk which has as much in common with, say, The Saints as it does with Canterbury whimsy.
The video for the track went online a few moments ago, watch it now on Clash.
