After taking some time on his own inner journey, he has been reborn. Towing a new band and recently joining the Third Eye Stimuli family, he has not come back empty handed. Today, we bring you his debut EP Waking Up/Feeling Bad.
Hello, 1960s? We found your love child Luke Spook, and his new EP Waking Up/Feeling Bad is one your generation missed!
This EP is filled with colourful tracks that will elevate and awaken your mind. Opener Isabella whisks you through an array of hazy goodness, a freaky voyage into the outer reaches.
The music video for Isabella presents us with the band amongst a setting which feels like wonderland. Tripping out with warm, nostalgic tones and kaleidoscopic fades, the dreamy footage perfectly paints the themes of this tune, which Spook describes to be “innocence and evils… the child-like world of fantasy and naivety”.
The EP translates this feeling – like you’ve ingenuously taken a puff on the Caterpillar’s pipe. It’s a hallucinogenic journey amongst lush green plains, warping flowers, cartwheels, and some very, very cool music.
Waking Up/Feeling Bad feels like a cross between the nostalgic vibes of Tim Presley’s White Fence and The Beatles’ Yellow Submarine; a funky, futuristic tribute to ’60s garage. Yet Spook takes this sound to a new level with curious chord combinations, new-fangled audio tech, and consciousness altering fade-outs.
It’s the most pleasant trip you’ll ever take.
If Luke Spook’s debut EP Waking Up/Feeling Bad sets you in the mood to unleash your inner freak, the upcoming EP launch at Otto’s House Party on Friday 13th of July provides the model stage to do so.
