Needle Points spins psych rock on its head for “Fur,” the final single before Feel Young drops
Local psych rock outfit Needle Points have announced details for their sophomore LP Feel Young, the long-awaited follow-up to 2013’s Bom Tugangu debut. The Scott McMicken-produced album will be out on September 23rd, and the band will be at Johnny Brenda’s this Sunday, September 18th for a release party with some advance vinyl copies on hand. Whetting our appetite for the sure-to-be colorful record (just check out that album art), Needle Points have shared one more single this week.
“Fur” spins the psychedelic dial in the opposite direction from the previously shared “Needlove,” striking a darker aesthetic with some mod-style guitar tones and a rumbling bass. It’s mysterious and a little haunting, with vocalist Colin Holloway singing “turn your sunset back we’ll wind the time again / with your palms face up you do your dance again” and later on “I feel the fur as I press it to your cold white skin / around the flame, it feels so hot it burns inside my teeth.” Paired with the boogie-ing “Needlove,” and doubtless the record as a whole, “Fur” rounds out the band’s kaleidoscopic personality.
