In the music produced by local band HiHazel, retro guitar riffs recall the influence of Jimi Hendrix, mixing with vocals that resemble a cross between the tones of Iggy Pop and the The Beatles. The Boise-based band has five members and a far reaching genre, described on its Facebook page as a mixture of psych, rock, velvet shoegaze, pop, noise and garage. The song “Ride into the Sun,” off the group’s debut album Private Palace (self-released, 2016) clocks in at 16 minutes, and is emblematic of its unique approach. Practically three songs in one, “Ride into the Sun” feels like a journey across HiHazel’s artistic range, beginning with a vintage Cage the Elephant vibe before transitioning to a solid instrumental piece rich with reverberating cello. At the end of the track, twangy vocals mix with psychedelic sounds in an exhausted spiral; a perfect audible replication of what an intergalactic slog to the sun might feel like.
