Denton’s Pearl Earl are part of the winter celebration sprawling across East Austin this weekend known as Saturnalia Fest. An all-female psych/garage rock experience, these ladies hone a sound that feels like it oozed out of a smokey time capsule.
“Cosmic Queen” pulls you down the psych-rock rabbit hole from the first note, not at all shying away from a vintage sound that’s sure to ring your strawberry alarm clock. Ariel Hatley’s groove-infused wails sound subterranean, highlighted by an ironically smooth transition into a climax of fuzzy, far-out garage rock scuzz.
Catch Pearl Earl at Sahara Lounge and Webberville Road Church at 3:30 on Sunday. See the full line-up and other information here.
