The Pacers

LONDON based quartet, The Pacers are set to drop debut single, Losing Touch on 22nd October in conjunction with a single launch at the notorious, Hawley Arms, Camden.

Starting out in 2013, the foursome have become regular faces in the Camden music scene, continuously gigging in venues such as The Black Heart and Barfly.

Drawing influences from the likes of The Stooges and Turtles, The Pacers create a spooky psychedelia, perfect for the Autumnal months.

The love of everything 60s is shared by all members, highlighting the trippy sound seeping from Losing Touch.

Adopting a hushed Iggy Pop twang within his vocals, front-man Alex Friedl carries the single into a new dawn of 'garage' shoegaze, complimenting a heavy hallucinogenic instrumental.

Introducing Losing Touch, the addictive, far-eastern riffs of Harry Stam could be easily mistaken for the beautiful sound from a sitar, penetrating a sultry beat from Jamie Yuan which in turn sends racy messages to Jay Creswell's bassline, throbbing in near silence with the vocal harmonium.

The accompanying video symbolises the kaleidoscopic vibe racing through the drug-induced vibrations, introducing a mind-expanding phenomenon that will only grow bigger.

Words Lauren Jones
