Whistlejacket rocket forward with ‘Oh Brother’ single

The Fierce Panda signees find razor-sharp hooks in their psych psyche.

Every weekday, DIY’s new music know-it-all Neu brings you one essential new release to get obsessed with. Today’s Neu Pick comes from Whistlejacket.

Amongst a cloud of psych-rock pretenders, Whistlejacket stand tall. Never straying too far from melody, never getting lost in their pedalboard, theirs is a noisy, captivating wall of sound which shines all the brighter for its pop sensibility.

Picking up the baton of grit and gusto dropped by early Tame Impala, new single ‘Oh Brother’ finds them surging forward, latching sharper hooks and bigger riffs than ever before onto their hard-to-hold cloud of noise.

Taken from a new EP of the same name and set for a Fierce Panda release on September 2nd (pre-order it digitally or on vinyl double EP here), get the first stream of ‘Oh Brother’ below, along with dates for Whisitlejacket’s newly announced European tour, featuring a hometown headliner at The Lexington.
