Floating out of Stockholm on a haze of shoegaze and psychedelia come four young men with hair and chiseled good looks (hardly a surprise given drummer Zacharias Zachrisson is the brother of Lykke Li) going by the name of Tussilago, armed with the video for their latest fine track ‘Say Hello’.

Following on from the release of their debut EP last year (containing the wonderfully trippy instrumental ‘Farewell‘) the boys are back and have honed and expanded their Swedish take on psych rock. ‘Say Hello’ is chiming, expansive and widescreen rock, and finds Tussilago in slightly more muscular form as the track moves from gentle chords, electronic ambience and singer Rickard Renström’s warm and welcoming voice to a searing space-rock solo that should finally give the band lift-off.

Their debut full-length is out later in the year on INGRID, produced by Petter Winnberg (Little Majorette), and below you can watch the video for ‘Say Hello’ – a suitably cosmic take on John Hillcoat’s The Proposition…
