Adelaide’s own indie psych-rockers Heinous Crimes have released their full debut album Popular Music for Popular People.
The seven-track debut LP encapsulates the band’s hypnotic brand of psych-rock that feels both unnerving and euphoric.
Coming off a huge 2019, with two single releases, preforming a multitude of live shows as well as supporting the Psychedelic Porn Crumpets, Heinous Crimes are here to make 2020 their bitch with Popular Music for Popular People.
Each song is a unique blend of psychedelic, alternative and experimental rock which perfectly flow from each track to the next.
Songs like Virtue and Valley give you classic, long, instrumental solos often missing from current popular music, showing both the band’s skills and talent as well as their appreciation for the music as well as vocals.
Heinous Crimes will be taking Popular Music for Popular people on the road along the East Coast, kicking off the first show in Adelaide at the Crown and Anchor Hotel on Saturday, February 29th.
