Brisbane five-piece TOISOC have been at it for a few years now, and since meeting in their final year of high school a couple of years ago, they’ve carved themselves out a unique spot in the Aussie psych scene.
They’ve manoeuvred through such a broad range of genres, it’s honestly been quite difficult to ear out all their musical influences.
Featuring one of the most deeply infectious bass lines you’ll ever hear, Brisbane outfit TOISOC’s new single McAllister is a new take on psych.
On their new single McAllister, the band rope in characteristics of jazz, blues, reggae, psych, pop, and rock to develop a sound that’s not quite like anything you’ve heard before.
With resonant vocals and one of the most deeply satisfying bass lines ever, the new track is incredibly punchy and infectious… like a polka dance track turned up to eleven.
Holding this new track beside their previous single Minor Tom, it’s easy to identify the differences – the latter seems more drenched in traditional psych wooziness, whereas McAllister treads more heavily in the realms of blues and jazz.
Though the two tracks still fit alongside one another. It’s an incredible attribute of the band’s songwriting – their ability to seamlessly meld contrasting genres to craft something wholesome and organic.
McAllister is taken off the band’s upcoming self-titled EP, to be released this August.
For now, do yourself a favour and listen to the new track above.
