Fresh from Spotify's All New Rock playlist
The new track from Shiva and the Hazards is a nonchalant and slick nod to shoegaze and Britpop. It's got a heavier contemporary edge but it's rooted in 90s style Mod nostalgia. The band also have a flair for the psychedelic which is evident on their other songs.
Produced by the band and mixed by RIDE front-man, Mark Gardener, Revolution Son is the first taste from their debut album, expected in 2021, and their follow up from last year's single, Angkor Wat.
That release coincided with back to back slots supporting British shoegaze legends RIDE and fellow 90s hitmakers CAST, on what was the Melbourne band's first major tour of Australia and New Zealand, playing in Sydney, Brisbane, Perth and Auckland, as well as two massive homecoming shows at the Corner Hotel and a sold out show at the iconic Forum Theatre.
With Shiva and the Hazards having been previously compared to the likes of The Verve, The Stone Roses and the DMA's, Revolution Son sees the four-piece delve more into their psychedelic rock and roll side, taking cues from the likes of Black Rebel Motorcycle Club and The Black Angels.
A track that is fitting for this moment in history, Revolution Son is out now.
