Earlier this year Some Bodies appeared on Bristol’s live circuit with a debut performance at the Crofters Rights that was much-anticipated before anyone really knew who or what they were exactly; a testament both to the band, comprised of prominent members of the local scene, and to Bristol’s supportive creative community. With their debut album out now, and their release show this Friday, we caught up with Some Bodies to get to know them In Short.

Having released Sunscreen last Friday, Some Bodies invite you into an expansive, psych-tinged world of their own creation that is at once imbued with nostalgia and a certain timeless quality. From the swooning Devendra Banhart-like intonations of ‘Tired All The Time’ to sprawling, psych-rock fuzz of ‘Higher Self’ Some Bodies craft overarchingly resplendent, soulful soundsapes that take you on richly textured, meandering sonic journey across the ten tracks.

With their debut album out now, get to know Some Bodies In Short and catch them at The Louisiana this Friday.
