‘My Shirt Guy is High’, the latest single from slacker indie rock trio Johnny Kills bears a striking similarity to MGMT’s monster hit ‘Kids’, but I mean that in the best possible light.

Space-y synths, soaring vocals and an absolute bucketload of melody. It’s easy and lazy (guilty as charged) to make 60’s references, with the liberal use of moog organ and the chant-a-long choruses which are easily imagined being sang around a festival bonfire; this is three minutes of glorious psychedelic pop well worth the time.
