Born out of the kaleidoscopic bedroom studio of vocalist, guitarist, and songwriter Sonny Campbell, The Dolphins from Melbourne have arrived in full bloom with their very own brand of swirling, sparkling psychedelia. The band’s use of repetition, drones, and textures harken back to Creation Records’ shoegaze-ing heyday, its spiritual godfathers Spacemen 3, and German forebears of exploration, Can and Neu!. Combined with Campbell’s keen sense of melody, Rigel Maple’s guitar genius, and reliable low-end drive from Adam Markmann, The Dolphins craft lush and memorable 1-chord rock with an urgency that begs to be played again and again.
