I’m super happy to announce that psychedelic surf rock power trio Retro Dizzy have joined the Plug Music Agency family. Their 2nd album Creatures of the Black Desert is out now.
The band consists of Nicolaas Rossouw (Drums), Stuart Dods (Bass, Backing Vocals) and Richard Liefeldt (Vocals, Guitar). Formed in 2014 in the small town of Hermanus, the band has now relocated to Cape Town and become part of the growing Psych scene. The band has been playing in venues all around Cape Town and the Western Cape and recently completed their first tour to JHB.
Six months after forming the band, they recorded their debut album, ‘Youth is like a Loaded Gun’, which was released to much acclaim in the underground scene, with the songs ‘James Dean’ and ‘Blasphemy’ being the high points of the record. They have progressed quickly from the ‘classic ‘ rock genre into a more surf-rock psychedelic sound, which can be heard on their latest record, ‘Creatures of the Black Desert’, which was released in the middle of 2015.
With their growth as a band, their shows have progressed into more of an art-punk explosion with elements of psychedelia with influences ranging from Night Beats to the Allah-Las.
