New Psychedelic Rock: Raindrop – Another World (2018)

Sydney-based artists Raindrop, pretty much influenced by the current neo-psychedelic scene, releases Another World, the second single from forthcoming album Meltdowns. The track also features a very nice music video, that mixes real footage with animation in a beach scenario with rocky mountains.

Raindrop is the solo project of Miles Devine guitarist for the psychedelic rock band Regular John. The whole album has been created at his home studio and counted with the support of other Sydney producers such as SPOD for the final touches.

The track has bright synths, plus a woody bass. It is a small psychedelic journey. It reminds pretty much the work of MGMT. The decision to create the album was after Regular John disbanded, with whom he had recorded and toured extensively. The bedroom studio expended and transformed into a full studio on his top floor in Sydney, called Mindfield Studios. He makes music as a sort of escapism.

With a couple of EP’s in the back catalogue, Miles has channeled his energies into creating a full-length album. With his cat and girlfriend as his only company and influence, he barricaded himself behind a wall of synthesizers and tape machines obscured by a cloud of marijuana. This strange paradise resulted in the album ‘Mild Meltdowns’. ‘’Another World,’ delves into the reality behind self-inflicted isolation and how avoiding people can skew their idea of you even further’’. Miles Devine

Raindrop’s debut LP Mild Meltdowns will be released later this year.
