A dollop of fetid garage with some supremely psychedelic overtones

Beach-bleached 60s psych-pop. Voyages are giving us the summer escapism that we’re all craving.”

“For me the word ‘Schmuck’ carries so much weight and sadness in just one syllable,” explains Voyages frontman, Will Walter. “So I fell in love with the word and felt compelled to write a song for every schmuck, deadbeat and down-and-out in every bar, in every town.“
The Bath 5-piece, made up of two sets of twins and an additional Brother, are about to release their five track, debut EP titled, New Year’s Day, made from a warm blend of 60’s pop with golden harmonies enriched by the psychedelic sounds of singer/songwriter, Will Walter’s record collection.
The track Schmuck is set over a 60’s surf guitar and dreamy vocal harmonies and is essentially a break-up song with a positive angle written from the perspective of giving yourself advice to avoid becoming “the schmuck in the bar with the glass.”
The Schmuck video contains extracts of a hidden gem from behind the iron curtain. The film was originally released in 1975 and is heavily influenced by Stanley Kubrick’s – 2001: A Space Odyssey, it seems the director has just swapped the adults for children and HAL for a hamster, then added in a teen romance.
“It’s an amazing looking film and has a Fisher Price quality that we loved. One day we’ll have the budget to star in our own space romance movie but until then this was a lot of fun to put together.”
