Following the release of their debut track ‘Bamboo Schooner’, Papaya Tree bring us their certain to be a hit new track ‘Radar’.
Recorded and produced by Phan Sharif, the master behind my personal fave Middle Kids, ‘Radar’ is a funkalicious track, brimming with indie-rock attitude, with a slice of jazz, reggae and soul on the side.
This indie sextet have got us hooked with their feel good vibes and sultry almost-Kooks-esque vocals. Their simmering bass and hits of brass really hit the spot, taking a darker rockier turn deeper into the track. What on paper might sound like a jumble of genres, really rather works!
With the ‘Radar’ music video soon to be released be sure to hit ‘follow’ in all the usual places so not to miss out.
