The Psych Scene in Cape Town is an interesting case study. Seemingly too small to sustain itself for a long period of time, it looked destined to fall by the wayside like so many other Cape Town Scenes. It has, however, managed to establish itself as a long-standing niche, with the Psych Night crew propelling it forward.
Enter Retro Dizzy. The band, which formed in Hermanus in 2014, describe themselves as a “surf rock band with slivers of psych swimming in reverb and distortion.” The band has slotted very neatly into a Cape Town Psych Scene that is so eager for new talent.
The band will be launching their new album this Friday (10 Feb 2017) at Manilla Bar in Cape Town, with support from Lucy Kruger & the Lost Boys, as well as The Deathrettes. You can find the event here.
Have a look at Retro Dizzy performing their track Feel Alright, live at Popsicle Studios.
