Ever come across a sound so memorably pleasant that you just have to pause for a second and tune in with full attention? You’re in for a special treat today. Cape Mandala, an indie band based off of Orange County California, just released their second EP titled Anamnesis, which is a project perfectly showcasing the group’s ever-changing sound and talents. With hints of psych rock, indie and electropop, the 4-song EP is Cape Mandala’s stepping stone to defining their sound and character.

The lo-fi approach of these tracks accentuates the indie elements of the group by giving it a rather summery vibe. The instrumentals are closely detailed, simple in general yet complex in rhythm. They possess a retrograding sound reminiscent of old times, but feels refreshing the more you listen to it. The opener, “Disorder’s Here”, screams resemblance of the sound of Future Islands, which always carries us back in time and ponder. Though short in length, these tunes will be stapled in your mind as time goes by.

If you like a fusion of indie and psych rock, make sure to follow Cape Mandala, as they’re set to make a name for themselves in 2015 with the release of Anamnesis. Let your emotions marinade for a second and listen to the EP below.
