Psychic Markers - Alannah Ashworth, Lewis Baker, Steven Dove, Leon Dufficy and Luke Jarvis - are a hodgepodge bunch made up of members of various other bands and with a geographical backdrop that stretches across countries as well as counties. It therefore makes sense that their music would be eclectically emblematic of such sprawling backgrounds.
The last few years for the band have been spent playing with the likes of Ulrika Spacek, Morgan Delt, Homeshake and Girl Ray, touring the UK and playing a series of festival slots, including a knockout set at 2017’s End of the Road Festival.
Part of the reason their End of The Road set was such a success was because it caught the band in a state of transition. Settled comfortably with their first album, Scrapbook No. 1 (Marshall Teller Records), behind them and ingrained to DNA level but with their second album, Hardly Strangers, freshly finished and the creative spark that led to it, still very much alight. The energy and intensity of the week-long session they spent holed up in Devon, with producer Iggy B, was still fresh in their minds and in their playing, as was the fact that they had just created their finest work to date.
The resulting Hardly Strangers - much like the band themselves - is an assorted affair. 50’s-tinged doo-wop nestles up alongside lush cinema-influenced soundscapes; whilst flashes of neo-psychedelia take pop hooks and stretch them out into hypnotic and elongated jams befitting of 1970’s Germany before pushing them into further cosmic realms.
