Stream The Gloomies' groovingly recollective "Sideways"

Memories have a way of shifting and transfiguring the past, creating picture shows in the mind that, while fictionalized, are still “based on a true story.” Such mental Kodaks inform the track “Sideways” by NYC-based the Gloomies, a collection of acid-bathed footnotes, rife with recollections of black lights and clear perfumes. It’s a fitting tune given the Gloomies’ recent relocation to Brooklyn from Southern California that the first single from the project's forthcoming LP Romance would be a psych-pop yarn from their last summer; crunchy vox and meandering guitars abound on this track, placing it squarely between the sounds of artists like Ariel Pink and the thematic overtones of Thomas Pynchon’s Inherent Vice. Listen to this tastefully far-out track below. —Connor Beckett McInerney
