Psychedelic Indie Folk Pop. - Getaway Dogs: Only in Retrospect
A beautiful, acoustic moment spent cozying up to the peaceful essence of life.
Only In Retrospect is the lead single from the Getaway Dogs release 'Belong,' and it featured flavors of psychedelic dream-surf and a folk-style acoustic guitar. To convey the concept of time as nonlinear it begins with the hum of an analog delay, while a shaker and cross-stick percussion builds into a full kit, only to recede again into self-reflection.
Breathy vocals, casual lyricism, and a sense of stillness come together to inform this even-handed groove that feels like pendulum, swinging back and forth. The added elements of delicately-placed melody and oscillating effect only add to the drug-like sense of comfort. Only in Retrospect, the latest from Getaway Dogs, is a beautiful, acoustic moment spent cozying up to the peaceful essence of life. We'd love to see them on tour with fellow left-coasters Burning Pictures.
all will distill and dilute
into its eternal essence
