Ghost Cult Magazine has the premiere of a new hazy psych romp from Austin’s Timothy Eerie. The track, “Transformation of Things” is a swirling sprawling trip that begins calmly, as all fever dreams do, with labored percussion and reverb drenched vocals. As it marches on, with distorted electric guitar interspersed, the song slowly spirals into a fuzzy noise rocker and is mirrored with the wild animation of the video. Ghost Cult calls it “a must listen for fans of the buttery-toned psych rock’n’roll.” Peep it below or over on Ghost Cult Magazine.

Okey Dokey team up again with fellow psych-soul artist and friend, Liz Cooper, for a special Valentine's Day duet for the lovers that’s making it’s debut as Paste Magazine’s Daily Dose! Liz's voice melds perfectly with Okey Dokey's pysch soul sound, as she sings the role of someone interested in taking up a moment, while Aaron sings about wanting to hold on to a spark for longer than just a night. Filled with a few chemistry puns, and two people wanting different things but failing to communicate, the track touches the different sides of catching feels in 2019. The two explain their parts further:
"We got together and really tried to create something that felt like what actual chemistry might be like. My parts feel dark and distant, Liz’s Feel soft and engaging and they meshed really well. We’re all lovers, so we wrote about being a little hopeless."
- Aaron Martin
“I wanted 'Modern Chemistry' to feel like a millennial romance song. it seems like people aren’t interested in true burning love anymore and are much more into an empty one night stand (pun intended).”
