SoCal psych rockers unleash trippy new single off upcoming LP Data Doom

Frankie and the Witch Fingers – the garage-psych-punk unit from Los Angeles, and one of the best live bands going right now – recently announced their forthcoming LP Data Doom and dropped lead single “Mild Davis” along with it. Today, the band unleashes another new single “Futurephobic” and its trippy music video, ahead of Data Doom‘s Sept. 1 release via Greenway Records.

“Futurephobic” is a frantic and charged-up banger containing plenty of sci-fi/fantasy/horror vibes as its title suggests. In addition to crunching riffage and throttling rhythms, the track captures hypnotic new wave synth melodies simmering alongside singer Dylan Sizemore’s mesmerizing croon. Meanwhile, the Slim Reaper-directed music video is a colorful, staticky, flickering affair – a glorious mash up of ’80s VHS/B-movie aesthetics – featuring macabre sci-fi imagery and an evil-looking Ronald McDonald convalescing around an energetic Frankie and the Witch Fingers performance.
