Canadian quartet The Bandicoots are injecting us with major 70s rock vibes with their new single “Shady Lane” where they keep our minds hooked with their riffage and retro swag that is refreshing. It’s the type of song that makes you feel nostalgic but also grounded as the quasi-autotune melody keeps your ADHD neurons hooked into the lane. Stream below:

In regards to the song, the band shared, “A few weeks ago, we hitchhiked back to the 70s. This guy named David Robert Jones was our chauffeur. On the way there, Jones lit a cigarette. He let his shades fall onto the tip of his nose, said he was going to show us something that the people of the 70s would never understand. Jones flicked on the radio, and this song was playing. ‘Listen close, boys, Jones said. ‘Bring this song to the people of 2018. It will change everything. The whole universe depends on it.’”

True story.
