GULP’s New Record Is A Perfect Slice of UV-Drenched Psych-Pop

by BUST Magazine

Much of the inspiration for Gulp’s latest album came from the band’s road trip through the Golden State, and you’ll definitely feel the heat of the California sun coming off of these tracks.  Their style hearkens back to the time when psychedelic pop had just discovered analog synths. Season Sun‘s opening track, “Game Love,” is a good example of Gulp’s penchant for vintage electronica, as a warbling Moog backs a cascade of shimmering guitars and Lindsey Leven’s gorgeous pipes. “Clean and Serene” is another shiny tune that recalls the Beach Boys’ analog keyboard jams on songs like “Feel Flows,” but with a more subtle, laid-back approach to the same style. If you’re out on the beach, blast this music from beneath your ‘brella while sipping some brews – you won’t be disappointed. —Luke Manning
