Somali Yacht Club are a band from Ukraine that plays a mixture of psychedelic, shoegaze, stoner rock and post metal and this is a review of their 2016 album "The Sun" which was released by Kozmik Artifactz.
A very atmospheric shoegaze sound starts off the album and after a few seconds melodic singing and clean playing are added onto the recording and after a minute the music gets heavier and goes into more of a stoner rock direction along with all of the musical instruments having a very powerful sound to them.
Melodies can be heard quite a bit in the guitar riffing and the music also brings in a great amount of post metal elements and when guitar solos and leads are utilized they bring in a touch of 90's alternative rock and a great portion of the tracks are very long and epic in length and also mixes in a great amount of psychedelic sounds and one track adds in a touch of reggae and the whole album also sticks to a very slow musical direction.
Somali Yacht Club plays a musical style that takes psychedelic, shoegaze, stoner rock and post metal to create a musical style of their own, the production sounds very professional while the lyrics cover dark themes.
In my opinion Somali Yacht Club are a very great sounding mixture of psychedelic, shoegaze, stoner rock and post metal and if you are a fan of those musical genres, you should check out this band. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Loom" and "The Sun". 8 out of 10.
