Remember jumping over cartoon ghosts in Super Mario Bros? The ghoulish drone of an organ making every leap feel like a life or death decision. No? Well I know you’re lying because everyone remembers that. It’s cool to be a geek now, relax.
Kikuyu, a Melbourne lass with pixie vocals and a penchant for old school organs captures the nostalgia of old school arcade games and whimsical lyrics in her debut LP Hunter Gathered. ‘Hobyah’, the album’s opener, encapsulates this vibe with creepy ghost house keys and 8-Bit snares.
A refreshing pop gem amidst an onslaught of garage rock ‘Hobyah‘ will make you want to simultaneously sway and jive, and check your closet for monsters.
