The first half of Mexican Slang's forthcoming EP Inside The Velvet Castle, due out on July 15 via Buzz Records July 15, is full of catchy pop disguised as psych-punk, heavy doses of fuzz and sinister vocals included. The eery tone is set by lead singer Annabelle Lee's distant, murky vocals that reflect on her time spent in a psychiatric facility. Guitars come in layers of power riffs and floating, high end melodies that only further the hauting atmosphere. But underneath all the fuzz lies a quirky, chaotic pop song. Halfway through, the EP takes a turn towards the sort of laid-back, psych-rock that's perfectly created for a rainy day of reflection and cigarettes.
