What makes Cheer special? Of course they have classic influences we all love like The Beatles, Pink Floyd, Sabbath, Deep Purple and more; sure they have bad-ass phasers, flangers, and Boss DD-3s, but what really makes them special? The secret lies in their utter commitment to attention to detail. Subtle tone settings and refreshing chord choices mix in with progressive-rock time signatures. They've managed to bring in some more modern Australian influenced sounds (Tame Impala, King Gizzard and the Lizard Wizard) to the mix as well to refresh our palette, and make some new and relevant entries into the prog-psych-pop genre.
Their shared proclivity for classic jams, gritty, raw, blues, modern production, timings and songwriting brought them together into a 3-piece ensemble churning out jubilant 5 to 8 minute journeys that travel up to 1974 and sound reminiscent of albums like Islands and Atom Heart Mother without straying into the pompous and overblown realm of later era prog.
