Shove six marshmallows into your mouth and try and say The Choppy Bumpy Peaches. It’s hard enough without the squishy sweets clogging up your throat. Luckily, their new single, Hai, is a little easily digestible. No antacid tablets or Heimlich manoeuvres are necessary for this funk, lo-fi rock sandwich.
In the middle of this meaty feast is Julia Lam, the lead vocalist of the band. I feel a connection with the singer as soon as I hear her voice. Are we sharing a table and reminiscing of past times? A candle lights the room, and her enchanting words suit the occasion. Hai is a thoughtful piece; it’ll listen to your problems, offer you advice, and spit you back out into the world.
Much like their other songs, the ’60s vibe on Hai is psychedelic and groovy. I want to dress up like Austin Powers and prance around the room. On the other hand, I’d also quite like to swallow a hallucinogenic and trip balls, possibly listening to Darjeeling or Spacetravel. The Choppy Bumpy Peaches’ tunes accommodate any scenario.
What I especially like about this act is their ability to kiss ass, then retrospectively switch it all up and suggest a cuddle on the beach. Yes, The Choppy Bumpy Peaches, I do want a picnic. I request ham and cheese sandwiches, beer, and a kiss. Groovy, baby. What?! Sorry! I got a little bit too excited there.
I highly recommend you start your own local drug business and only supply The Choppy Bumpy Peaches’ music. You’ll make a killing and the world will be a much better place. Anyway, that’s enough with the blabbering. Listen to Hai now, you naughty boys and girls.
