The HOLYDRUG COUPLE – ” Dreamy “

In 2013, Chilean psych-rockers the Holydrug Couple put out the swirling, spaced-out LP “Noctuary” on Sacred Bones. Gabriela once wrote that Sacred Bones artists sound like they’re always “hanging out together in some dark cave,” and she’s right. But if the Holydrug Couple are huddled in that deep cavern, they’re the ones closest to the opening, gazing heavenward at a glittering aurora borealis. That’s what the appropriately named “Dreamy,” the first single from the band’s upcoming album, “Moonlust”, resembles: an endless expanse of colorful night sky. But this new taste of the Holydrug Couple definitely grooves more than anything on Noctuary. Maybe members Ives Sepúlveda and Manuel Parra were jamming to some soul artists during the recording process? The band shouted out both Aretha Franklin and Air as inspirations, which does suggest “Moonlust” will transcend its predecessor’s neon-psych bubble.
