Nottingham psychedelic/art pop 5-piece Midnight Rodeo have aired their new single “Thank You for Your Time“, and its accompanying video.
The song is out now via Fatcat Records, and represents a slight departure from the band’s thus far signature West Coast psychedelic stylings as they continue to diversify their sound in anticipation of an upcoming album release. Grab it here.
Thank You For Your Time lurches in on all fours, with a thunderous rhythm and a smokescreen of dense, resonant feedback and enigmatic synth – more reminiscent of modern Aussie Psychedelic Rock than euphoric 60’s Californication.
Lyrically, lead singer Maddy Chamberlain stands in solidarity with everyone that’s ever had to serve a piss-drunk stag party at a nightclub, suffered the cringe-inducing pantomime of a sales job or endured the eye-rolling shenanigans of a David Brent-esque line manager. It’s a vindicating dedication to the under-appreciated junior staff member. Think ‘9 to 5’ if Dolly Parton had a fuzz pedal.
