Who: Gorky’s Zygotic Mynci
Based: Cardiff, Wales
Players: John Lawrence (guitar), Euros Childs (vocals/keyboards), Richard James (bass), Euros Rowlands (drums).
Why You Should Care: Gorky’s Zygotic Mynci make absolutely beautiful music. The Welsh quartet has been evolving and perfecting their sound since 1993, and while Sleep/Holiday expands the band’s unique brand of psychedelic folk pop to embrace more country twang, it still wraps its delicate melodies around you like a big, fuzzy blanket. Lovely!
