The Melbourne foursome bring a pop notion to their tightly-wound psychedelia.
NEW MUSIC | SUNFRUITS | WORDS BY BRAD SKED
Sunfruits have shared their latest single Mushroom Kingdom via Sydney label Third Eye Stimuli Records, with a 7″ vinyl release in the works. Bathing in jangly, funk-laden psychedelia, Mushroom Kingdom is a colourful, sweltering and utterly joyous carousel ride. The groove-based new single bends genre tags left to right in a tight-knit three minute sonic storm.
You may have caught the Australian outfit kicking off the Interstellar Food Drive Festival recently, Hard Of Hearing was a promotional partner for the charity fundraiser, the quartet performing their psych-disco jams live from a sun-scorched porch in Melbourne. If not, you can relive the event and Sunfruits’ full set which raised money for UK food banks via The Trussell Trust here.
The quartet’s latest output is reminiscent of Australian contemporaries Bananagun or Babe Rainbow with a little dose of psychedelic-funk party king, King Khan. Mushroom Kingdom is the latest release since Sunfruits’ debut EP Certified Organic, released in February 2020. Join the revolution, all hail Sunfruits!
