Psychedelic rockers EFG boldly embrace a heavily-textured array of driving, over-amped guitars that brings back a certain bravado to the genre. It serves to mention that all of its members are veterans in this kind of setting, as Imaad Wasif (lowercase, Yeah Yeah Yeahs), Josh Garza (Secret Machines) and Tom Biller (Liars, Warpaint) all have a steady track record within the modern noise/experimental persuasion. Their most recent single, Outlier”, seamlessly merges reverbed guitars and pounding drums with a strong sense of pop melody that falls somewhere between classic Detroit rock and cosmic krautrock.
The band is opening for Swedish psych-rock institution Dungen at the Echo tomorrow, May 5th. The “Outlier" 7’’ is currently available for purchase via bodankuma.com. - Juan Rodríguez
