Poetic and lyrical, Messy Mammals’ Wish I’d Said pulls the best from alt rock and electronica to deliver a killer single, the first of several promised for 2017. With a clearly articulated vein RnB vein pulling the floating synth sounds along the track, it’s a diverse sound void of monotony.
Formed in London and now based in Melbourne, the best friend duo of Asha Trips (bass and vocals) and Fionn Brewer (production and guitar) have hit the ground running after the release of album Rewind // Zodiac earlier in the year.
A swirling and transformative sound which seemingly defies genre, Wish I’d Said pushes the boundary between melodic spoken word and traditional dream pop.
Wish I’d Said brings in a spacey, glitchy soul sound from Messy Mammals. Think Lauryn Hill in a rocket ship, sipping’ on champagne and caressing a synth while gliding past Mars.
Hopefully we can expect a similar aesthetic in music and videos to come, given that the quirky and ethereal quality of Rewind // Zodiac really brought it home for the duo. A endearing, lo-fi garden escape.
Messy Mammals will be hitting venues around Melbourne this week to showcase the album and newly released single, an experiential show not to be mixed.
