Daily Yinz – Astrology Now – Evil

Psych-rockers Astrology Now continue a strong run of singles with “Evil,” released at the end of February.

“Evil” kicks off with a massive, theatrical instrumental flourish, and then quickly settles in to a flower power groove complete with midtempo drums, ambling bass, and guitars that flit about like the circling birdies that used to accompany a bonk on the head in old cartoons. Frontman Greg Mastrean, his high-register vocals backed by baroque, Fleet-Foxes-on-research-chemicals harmonies, sings of a (potentially fruitless) search for understanding, focusing on the refrain, “Evil is above you.” Despite the menacing sentiment, the band sounds content to keep on stargazing anyway, and we’re all the better for it.
