Nashville super psych group get weird in new video
Disintegration and rebirth is part of the natural order of things. This statement holds true for Okey Dokey, a Nashville based psych collective made up of the remnants of past and present bands The Weeks, Sol Cat and Morning Teleportation, conjuring up a sound firmly at home in the future.
Their latest offering is the sultry 60’s garage inspired “Either Or, It’s All the Same”. Speaking on the video the boys said “This video came to be when our close friend and guru, Paul, was saying that he had never once been asked to be in a video in all of his years as an industry man. Johny and I obviously felt the need to help him out. What better way than a home invasion! That was all before the joint kicked in and we decided to hit another dimension on the way home.” Be prepared to get very weird.

Brand new single ‘All Of My Love’ by Okey Dokey premiered by Clash Music
Debut album ‘Love You, Mean It’ emerges on March 3rd, and it recalls everything from early Motown to supreme psych-pop.
New cut ‘All Of My Love’ is an apt introduction, a taut, highly defined piece of pop songwriting with some wonderfully odd moments.

The Sound of Brussels: Moaning Cities : interview by BRUZZ
Their brand new single “Insomnia” out 22th June
MOANING CITIES IS A PSYCHEDELIC ROCK’N’ROLL BAND FORMED IN BRUSSELS IN LATE 2011 WITH AN URGE TO PLAY MUSIC TOGETHER, BLENDING BLUES ROOTS, GRITTY ROCK’N’ROLL GUITARS AND SITAR-DRIVEN PSYCHEDELIA. THE ASSOCIATION OF ELECTRIC GUITARS AND ORIENTAL INSTRUMENTS LIKE THE SITAR, SAZ OR OUDOU WAS THE NATURAL WAY TO COMBINE WESTERN AND EASTERN SOUNDS, OLD AND CONTEMPORARY INFLUENCES INTO ONE FLOW OF INSPIRATION THAT WOULD REFLECT THE CONTRASTED AND DIVERSE PERSONALITIES OF THE CITIES WE LIVE IN AND TRAVEL TO. MOANING CITIES’ MUSIC FINDS GROUND IN THE 60’S AND 70‘S: THE DOORS, VELVET UNDERGROUND, 13TH FLOOR ELEVATOR, SILVER APPLES… AND ALSO IN TODAY’S PSYCH/KRAUT/STONER SCENE: BRMC, THE BLACK ANGELS, DEAD MEADOW, GOAT, WOODEN SHJIPS, NIGHT BEATS… AND BESIDES TRADITIONAL MUSIC FROM NORTH AFRICA, MIDDLE-EAST AND INDIA BRING OTHER COLORS TO SOME SITAR-DRIVEN COMPOSITIONS.

“Take Me To Your God.” Filmed and edited by the band’s guitarist, Liam Watkins, the video is a trippy companion piece to the stoner rock track. With sights of eyeballs being injected by needles, the video is not for the squeamish but for your inner metal head or psych rock fan, Watkins and company really hit the spot.
