New Pikelet track ‘Pressure Cooker’

Melbourne psych pop wonders Pikelet return with the first evidence from their upcoming third album Calluses.

Premiered today on Spin, teaser track Pressure Cooker is an eerie, loping marvel – six minutes of dark, dreamy post-apocalyptic shuffle – apocalysmic disco? It’s a sure sign that third album Calluses, due out on Chapter Music in August, is gonna be worth the wait since 2010’s AMP-shortlisted album Stem.

While not in the studio, Pikelet have spent the last few years playing with the likes of Beirut, Shellac, Dirty Projectors, Broadcast and Ariel Pink, while band focal point Evelyn Morris has drummed for the Boredoms at Melbourne International Arts F and even shared private jets around the country with Leonard Cohen (as a member of Clare Bowditch’s band).
