New LP ‘New Candys As Medicine’ comprises 10 exceptional tracks including the single releases, ‘Dark Love’ and ‘Song For The Mutant’. The album was mixed by Loop’s original drummer/producer John Wills,

Album opener, ‘Thrill Or Trip’ is a dark reverb psychabilly stomp; ‘Song For The Mutant’ ushers languid carefree spirals, tinged with irresistible sitar flavoured, blissed out vocals; Possibly my fave among favourites, ‘Patent Medicine’, is the epitome of evangelical menace; ‘Dark Love’ is hauntingly evocative, sonically dense yet spiritually uplifting; ‘Aphrodite In Leather’, a charging tenebrous ode to unrequited love; Side B gets underway with ‘Overall’, an exhilarating uptempo chord-crashing, kaleidoscopic mantra; ‘Bones On Fire’ is a soothing country folk acoustic, wrapped in an elusive summer of love, vocal flight of fancy; ‘Mess’ bounces back with trance like discordant eloquence, entwined in killer hooks and floating riffs; ‘Jolly Pan’ is a swamp blues jam shuffle for the beat generation; Ensemble finale, ‘Endless Deadline’ brings proceedings to a shuddering euphoric climax, juxtaposing jangling resonance chamber shredding delights…

Semblances of sombre grey clouds in the New Candys’ multiverse, come punctured through with deliriously primal silver linings.

In much the same way that Singapore Sling’s ‘The Tower Of Foronicity’ ticked all the boxes last year, ‘New Candys As Medicine’ achieves a similar genre defying, yet influence defining success. As with Henrik Björnsson, New Candys have distilled the essence of that which hold’s them in it’s spell, fashioning unique fresh textures anew. - Backseat Mafia
