In the short time since putting their heads above the parapet in 2012, the Sailmakers folk rock sound has changed somewhat and has seen a shift towards the purple haze side of the airwaves. A lot of groups are jumping on the bandwagon of the modern psych movement with some fantastic bands out there slinging audible dope and its the massive shot in the arm that British music needs.
Preach Preach Preach has a definite groove on guitar with a kick ass melody that instantly has your head nodding along and although the signature reverb effects are plain to hear, the main guitar riff maintains a high degree of clarity and not so much of the haze side of things. The wider sounds seem to redress this and with lyrics like “On the astral plane I’ve got a lion to tame” there’s plenty going on for all you day trippers to get your teeth into. Overall a cracking tune that’s well worth a listen and if the material that’s forthcoming is more of the same then we will be giving it a good spin.
