An adventure island surrounded by waves of nostalgia and built on a foundation of blissful, retrocentric rock, Some Bodies shape a world over the course of ten impeccably produced pop nuggets that’s distorted yet inviting, told from the point of view of a band looking back at their youth.
The melancholy nature of ‘Sunscreen’ bares all the markings of a half-forgotten summer of freedom before life happens and we’re forced to look at the world without the rose-tinted glasses of adolescence. As such it’s both unforgettable in its melodies and delicately playful, but boasts some hefty modern subject matters such as virtue signalling, climate change, dead-end jobs, celebrity, religion, shame, social media and mental health. The album pulls in sounds from every corner of rock history, from the dulcet lo-fi harmonies of The Beach Boys and Sparklehorse to the contemporary psychedelic leanings of Tame Impala and Beach House. Opener ‘Tired All The Time’ recalls lazy, hazy afternoons before the poignant ‘TV Show’ hits harder with an aggressive krautrock riff and smoky delivery.
Elsewhere album highlights like ‘Higher Self’ and ‘Sunshine’ revel in their unabashed love for The Beatles, and if these tracks serve to lead you on a journey through the bands surreal fictional funfair then ‘Escape’ plays the role of haunted house, with its dark edge, jagged guitars and sinister garage-rock rhythm. Towards the end on ‘Aint Over Yet’ we’re given a healthy slice of Pixies charm, without cutting too close to the bone.
