Listening to joints like their new single “Out of Reach,” you can fairly smell the incense, weed and freshly brewed cappuccino. Are The Zombies back from the dead? Nope, it’s Free Deserters. These guys have a talent for sincere alt-rock tunecraft in the manner of UK’s Tribes and they roll out their creations with conviction and roguish attitude, which is exactly how it’s done. It’s the insouciance that makes their taste in bouncy Brit-pop bass lines, space rock guitar noise and meaty garage riffs seem very clever indeed.
Check out our interview with these guys, and in the meantime, get groovy with their single “Out of Reach.”
