Psychotropical is the first instalment of new EP trilogy from Melbourne singer/songwriter Ben Wright Smith. Part One of Psychotropical is nothing but warm, fuzzy and full of sunshine, taking you back to the era of love. Each track on the EP tells you a little more about the new journey Ben Wright Smith seems to be taking us on. The ride is vibrant as you listen to the mix of sounds throughout the rich melodies and guitar lines.
The stand out track for me was track four on the list – ‘Home Sick’ – which has more of a synth vibe similar to Tame Impala.
Overall, the four track EP is light, textured and carries a lot of feeling throughout start to finish, so it will be interesting to see what is next released as Ben Wright smith continues to release his three part EP into early next year before combining the three EP’s onto vinyl.
If you enjoy the sounds of Courtney Barnett and Tiny Little Houses, Ben Wright Smiths new EP is a must listen to.
