Imagine such a song, a certified banger, with a clear Bowie influence mixed with indie artists such as Mt. Joy or Rainbow Kitten Surprise. Can’t really imagine it? Just listen to “My Unkempt Billies.”
It’s part psych rock but a much happier version, not that these two things are mutually exclusive. Psychedelic rock can be happy, but it is literally impossible to listen this song and not have it pick up your spirits. As a chronic sad boy who is addicted to the melancholy and goes months at a time without listening to a single "happy" song, I should avoid this track. Yet like a dog to its own vomit, I come back again and again to get my daily dose of musical upper.
*Now did I reach out to Bly to ask them what this song is about? Of course not!
