Enter the White Room. Inside you’ll find a serrated blend of sky-gaze psychedelia and raucous distortion. The Brighton-based five-piece have already won plaudits for their compelling live shows. Released last year after support slots for Weller and acclaimed performances at Reading and Leeds, their debut EP ‘Fizzy Liquid’ was described by NME as ‘driving, and pretty lawless’. This year White Room will play Dot to Dot, The Great Escape and Live at Leeds, with many more to be announced at a later date.

The latest release by this Brighton five-piece and signee’s to Liverpool’s famed Deltasonic Records was a double EP and a concept record of sorts entitled Eight, released last December. The double-EP contains touches of ‘60s classic psych (the group is named for a Cream song, after all), rock and contemporary synth-pop. Jake Smallwood and Josie McNamara intermingle vocals brilliantly, as on the devilishly catchy chorus of “Stole the I.V.” The EP’s kaleidoscopic, escapist lyrics mixed with dreamy soundscapes via distorted guitars and transcendent synths make for an overwhelmingly compelling listen. White Room have supported the legendary Paul Weller back in the UK, and hopefully their first U.S. shows aren’t too far off.
