One of the juiciest psych-rock delights you could pluck from the music playing fields of the UK right now”(Louder Than War) 

 Imagine if Noel Gallagher’s solo record had actually been willing to cut loose and explore its boundaries, and you might be arriving somewhere near to their sound”(Drowned In Sound) 

 The visceral charge of BRMC and the psychedelic adventure of Primal Scream”(Manchester Evening News)     

Combining the sounds of classic 60’s psychedelia with the likes of The Verve, Brian Jonestown Massacre and Primal Scream – Manchester based four piece The Watchmakers have created a unique blend of psychedelic laced rock ‘n’ roll that has been shrouded in mystery since they formed. 

The Watchmakers brand new tracks To Be Part of You and Kimnara tap influences born primarily from 60s psychedelia into a sonic celebration of creativity.

A sense of northern mysticism surrounds the band’s lead single To Be Part of You and is a treat for the ears. A euphoric swirl of sound. B-side Kimnara is an enigmatic, heat-soaked new opus that breathes colour back into the drone of everyday life with spaced out riffs and lyrics.

Mint green tapes available to purchase ahead of their gig at Manchester Psych Fest II November 29 at Night and Day Cafe.

Listen here:  To Be Part of You

Upcoming Tour Dates:

Manchester – 29 November  – Night and Day Cafe

Preston – 6 December – The Mad Ferret

BLOSSOMS, INTERVIEW, CAMP BESTIVAL
FOR many the last few years have absolutely flown by. Election after election, tragedy after tragedy, humane coming together of community, solidarity, Iceland, the year of the celebrity death, Pokemon Go. Too much to remember. Yet for four lads, who unbeknownst to them spent the whole of their lives living within 2km of each other, […]
NICK MULVEY, INTERVIEW, CAMP BESTIVAL
“WHEN you’re finished changing, you’re finished,” is how the antiquated adage from founding father Benjamin Franklin goes. That ability to be flexible and change when the time is right. Hundreds of years-ago that famous line was uttered, but it’s never felt more relevant, and for former modern-jazz-turned-songwriter-come-newly-christened-father Nick Mulvey, changing and maturing has always been […]
JOE INNES & THE CAVALCADE, FOREIGN DOMESTIC POLICY, INTERVIEW
“You know with this climate at the minute everything is changing,” London-based Joe Innes tell Quenched Music. With his new album ‘Foreign Domestic Policy’ taking years to finally arrange, it’s hardly surprising it’s become a labour of love for the self-confessed post-Brexit indie songwriter. “It took it’s time but that’s because in the time I […]
COMMON PEOPLE, SOUTHAMPTON, LIVE
AS THE final stragglers danced their way from the Common People main stage, the filthy sounds of favourite headliner Sean Paul still ringing around the ears, it was time for the organisers to reflect on how successful this year’s festival was. 40,000 flocked to Southampton’s Common in anticipation of yet another Bank Holiday jaunt on […]
SIMPLE MINDS, MAYFLOWER THEATRE, SOUTHAMPTON, LIVE
IN SIMPLE terms the word ‘acoustic’ means not having electrical amplification. But as Glaswegian new-wave act Simple Minds triumphantly demonstrated to a packed house at Southampton’s Mayflower Theatre, definitions are subjective. You would be forgiven for expecting longstanding Minds members Jim Kerr, the idyllic vocalist and endearing frontman since the group first formed in 1977, […]
CARELESS PEOPLE, CHARLOTTE OC, ALBUM, RECORDED
FOR SOMETIME, Charlotte Mary O’Connor – aka Charlotte OC – has been the electro-soulstress on the cusp of brilliance. Her 2013 track ‘Colour My Heart’ remains one of the darkened pop classics that finally distanced her from the bratty pop career Sony had once dreamt she would have. And in the four-years since, critics, fans […]
