“Come On Home” by Timothy Eerie is a head, body and soul trip of a song. Like a shaman bringing me back to my high school days of listening to Tame Impala and MGMT. The summers of Junior year spent at the beach, drinking with my buddies and doing mushrooms / acid any chance I could get.
When I close my eyes and listen to this song I feel like I’m tripping. I don’t know what that means for my love for this song, but that’s what happens. I see blues, greens, purples and it feels like I’m diving head first into a Microsoft Windows Music visualizer. (Honestly listen to this song with one of those visualizers on, IT CHANGES EVERYTHING.)
Being that the song is only a little over two minutes it leaves you wanting. Wanting more gooey slimy reverb to enter your ear holes. But the bass! Can we talk about the driving crunchy bass in this song? It reminds me of “Elephant” from Tame Impala or something from the 60s (that I can’t quite put my hands on).
This is the perfect song to throw on at a party with your close friends after you just dosed some white on white colorless. If for some reason you don’t know what that means–you need to really dive into this song and search your heart. It will probably take you to the nearest cow field to pick some wacky mushrooms.
It’s hard to talk about this song in the classical music sense. It doesn’t convey something that is technically talented or one guitar / drum line that is just fantastic. It’s more of a feeling that the song portrays. That feeling being happiness and movement, with a little calming and beauty.
This is one of the purest psychedelic rock songs I’ve heard in almost a year. I’m so excited about what Timothy Eerie has in store for us in the future. If I were you, I’d add this to my summer playlist immediately, that way you have it when the need arises. When you and your friends are on the way to a music festival or just hanging out at a local national park or spring. When nature is so beautiful and you’re surrounded by the mastery that is the earth.
If, once you listen to “Come On Home”, you feel compelled like I do to see this performed live, you can catch the band here:
