SMOKING TREES - FUNTIME SUNSHINE 45 RPMHYPNOTIC BRIDGE
Evolving from a deep well of musical concepts and sounds that came together during the long, strange months of the lockdown, “Funtime Sunshine” is the perfect song at the perfect time, encapsulating the optimism of an enlightened new era on our horizon. Flowing with dreamy, lysergic lyrics and sitar-laden soundscapes, it’s an invitation to let go of it all and bask blissfully in the eternal Now.
B-side “’66” shifts The Smoking Trees sound into a higher, faster gear, celebrating the monumental year the fuse was lit for an explosion of psychedelic fashion, film, art and, most importantly, music. Capturing the psych-garage energy of the era, it’s the perfect complement to the A-side’s meditative mindfulness.
