Danish neo-psych ensemble The Echo Peaks first lulled us into a winsome sense of hypnagogic, Britpoppy delirium with the languid Holiday Season, and they’re apparently stuck in that same “cruise control” rut as they mosey on into the commensurately prepossessing Ruler. A further suggestion they’re more than capable of measuring up to estimable past masters of their cherished ‘psykedeliske rock’ aesthetic – think Zappa, Barrett and, to a strange extent this time around, ’60s pop pinup Bobby Vinton – the song proves smoky as Edwyn Collins’ A Girl Like You; stubbly as Devendra Banhart’s bristly, quite brilliant Rejoicing In The Hands (Of The Golden Empress). Comparisons that, subjectively complimentary, we can but hope sit well with the Copenhagen outfit.
