Born from the initials of their first names, LSD are currently one of the Newcastle’s most exciting independent bands. The trio of Leith Moonen, Scott Emblen, and Dave Donnelly have spent most of their career’s so far refining LSD’s sound, bringing their own unique take on the traditional, heavy blues genre into the spotlight with modern tracks such as ‘Parachute’.
With a sound that is driven by the likes of Band of Light, Stevie Ray Vaughan, and Black Sabbath, LSD begun to make a name for themselves on the local scene thanks to years of raucous live performances and a will to experiment.
It’s an energy and passion that has helped them capture a truly authentic sound, combining funk, blues, and tradition Australian rock to form something new, their sound calls back to better days, generating a bristling tactile atmosphere, and shining a glistening spotlight on the band’s upbeat, energetic attitude.
Relentless innovators, the band have been pushing their sound with a stream of new release. Most recently, LSD released their eponymous, five-track EP, a masterclass in classic Australian rock. One of the highlights of the release, ‘Caught in The Middle’ is a visceral, powerful track that sparks excitement and blows any doubts about their abilities out of the water.
Available to stream now on Spotify and Bandcamp, ‘Caught in The Middle’ is your ticket to the wild world of LSD.
