BOYO’s hazy rock attacks psychedelic with the force of a good shoegaze maelstrom, waves of guitar letting off sparks every which way. “Moombah” is a good example of that merger, pop sensibilities informing everything from the tone of the guitar solo to the song’s verse-chorus progression. It’s surprisingly simple: mix catchy chord progressions with legions of guitar, and you’ve got yourself a winner. Given how good “Moombah” is, this seems to be a solid formula.
Control releases August 26th.
