Archi Deep and the Monkeyshakers – If Only It Was Sunny

Screen Shot 2016-01-03 at 14.06.55Right then, 2016 it is – let’s have something nice and easy to listen to to kick things off then.

Oh alright, let’s go full out weird and indulge in the bizarro world style of Archi Deep and the Monkeyshakers. Equipped with a chaotic video that flicks between channels at a rate that would suggest the remote-holder has a pair of bassist’s fingers on them, everything you’re about to delve into is just as chaotic and all over the place as if your ears were channel hopping on their own.

And that makes it a ruddy corker to wake you right up and stick two firm middle fingers up against convention. Whistling around between all kinds of funky sounds, brief waltzing moments and pockets of rage so intense that you’ll feel a turn to the dark side (guess who just saw Star Wars?).

This is raw, guttural music that shows someone whose brain doesn’t quite work in that normal way – isn’t that the same for all the best of those creative types though?

Nevertheless, like it or not you can’t help but feel fixated as though your eye has become glued to a rather unusual kaleidoscope. Go on, have yourself a wee adventure.
