Multitasking. Some are good at it, some not so much. Virginia Beach musician Josiah Schlater is pretty good at it though. His project Ladada is just one of a couple he’s got on the go, and it allows him to indulge in a bit of DIY kind-of punk that’s fun and full of beans. His new EP Hi Five is coming out in April via Gold Robot, but before then he’s let us in on what the collection might sound like by sharing ‘New Psych.’
Filled with thunderous drums and riotous guitars, as well as some shoegaze fuzz, it’s a high energy affair that wastes no time in getting in your face with its frenetic nature. Luckily we do get some reprieve when Schlater’s vocals come in, but the quick pace persists and drags you along for the ride. In a nice way, of course.
Listen to ‘New Psych’ below.
