Backwords is psychedelic folk. Embodiment is the easiest way to describe the music they create; they are psychedelic folk, they produce it in every form and fashion. You have a song like “And Then Sigh” which bounces along like a less frantic Caribou song, and then you have a softer, more emotive track like “Center Of The Earth”. Both demonstrate the band’s precise psychedelic nature. Then there’s the fun video for “Center Of The Earth”. Joyous and playful, it too conveys the nature of the band perfectly. Sun, rain, snow – whatever the weather, “Center Of The Earth” will strike in you the urge to go out and enjoy it.
