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

AETHERLIGHT, MT WOLF, ALBUM, RECORDED
NOT SINCE Sigur Rós landed in 1997 with their maiden release ‘Von’, has a debut album created such an anthemic buzz that every shard of the body quakes in sorrow, ectascy and electricity. And within minutes of London trio Mt Wolf’s ‘Aetherlight’ the very nature of the listener’s spirituality and existence is bought to question. […]
FEEDER, GUILDHALL, SOUTHAMPTON, LIVE

IN WRITE, HAPPYNESS, ALBUM, REVIEW
IT’S been three-years since alternative outfit Happyness became our favourite dejected youngsters with 2014’s ‘Weird Little Sister’, and now as the Londoners return with ‘In Write’ the adolescent euphoria has become mature beauty. Whereas previously Happyness were about dysfunctional lyrics and sobering melodies, the space now filled by the trio represents something closer to the […]
THE STRANGLERS, GUILDHALL, SOUTHAMPTON, LIVE
