With summer closing in fast and the days getting brighter, artists and acts around the country are now looking to brighten up their catalogues, and none seem to have already cemented that sun-kissed groove more than The Jerichos.
Originally emerging out of Oxford last year, the band has been quick to establish themselves as a distinctly British psych-rock outfit. Their latest release ‘Even If You Are The Cactus’ sees them double down on that warming aesthetic, creating a delectably smooth and enticing aura throughout.
Speaking about the single, frontman and songwriter Julian Wagstaff said, “Written back in April 2020, at a time when the world was just beginning to discover the reality of lock down, I was struggling to find inspiration and longed deeply for the rush of excitement that comes with writing new material.”
“Part of my makeup is that I seem to go through periods of being fascinated with certain objects and things” – Awhile back it was flamingos which was the inspiration for The Jerichos debut single. Time to move on, enter the humble and majestic Cactus.
“A song of few words I wanted to capture the moment in time, how things were changing and the uncertainty that people were feeling. But at the same time, I wanted something upbeat, that people could dance to, remembering the good times”
They may have only just begun, but with tunes like these, we can be certain that The Jerichos are meant for much bigger things in the near future.
