Melbourne based quartet Cold Hiker's modus operandi is to mix unusual time signatures and chord progressions into an alternative-rock setting. The best example of this sound can be found on their simple "Phosphenes". It demonstrates their shifty-pop styling admirably, calling to mind the work of Radiohead, Alt-J and because of their soaring vocals, Geneva. If you like your guitar music on the esoteric side, then these Aussies are the group for you.
"Phosphenes" is taken from Cold Hiker's self-titled E.P, which is out now.
