The Retinas





New The Retinas Single Release Available for Streaming & Purchase

A pair of new tracks have surfaced from garage-psych trio The Retinas. “Back Alley Brats” is a fuzz-forward, percussive march in the night, as the vocals saturate through its narration. There’s a steadiness with an underlying turmoil that appears ready to erupt. “Come On Over” serves a personal invitation, delving into relationship roles and insights in an emotive yet even-keeled manner. Both songs seem placid on the surface, but the seed of agitation is present.





New The Retinas EP Available for Streaming & Purchase

Yellow Rocket, the latest musical vessel from The Retinas, was recently launched. Whether simmering in a stargazing state of reflection or surging toward the unknown, the power trio retains a gravitational pull. Disseminated from space, the garage rockers balance hushed valleys with adrenaline-laced peaks. Cultivating an ebb and flow between the here and the out there, Yellow Rocket sparkles on our radar.





New Music Video: "Yellow Rocket" - The Retinas

The Retinas's forthcoming EP Yellow Rocket is set to take off tomorrow, and the power trio will be heading out this weekend on its fall tour in support. As a precursor, the group posted a new video for its title-track. Calming vocals radiate as footage of old-school space vessels, moon imagery, and a bit of kung fu fighting are integrated with seductive images of ladies and wonders of nature, creating a strange yet compelling sequence, produced by Big Mouth Philly. That floating-passenger approach shifts gears as the afterburners kick in, increasing the tempo and the rapid-fire rpms of the clips. It’s a wild race to the finish line!

Weekend Warrior, March 16 - 18

This Saturday evening, the garage-rock trio of Tom McHugh, Anthony Fulginitti, and Andy Silverman, a.k.a. The Retinas, will be commemorating the release of their new EP ANDY (Pho Realz Records), with a rip-roaring performance at Ortlieb’s. The band tools within a diverse-range of sonic textures from loose exuberance, to a more personal scaled-back yet powerful reverb-shaking discharge of emotion. Working the sliding scale, gearing up to break free, and gathering those of a similar mind within united-infectious melodies stoked with a psychedelic candle, The Retinas launch into the psych-pop stratosphere that still feels comfortably at home. Joining in the festivities, the quartet of Stoops stitch together tight melodic turns of phrase, gradually heating up as those words stick in one’s head and the body’s tension dissipates. With a new EP Glow Worm set for release on April 1, the electro-folk hybrid of Seth Carpenter, a.k.a. Bucolic, will set things into motion. – Michael Colavita

New Music Video: "Necklace Stone" - The Retinas

The power trio of The Retinas recently shared a new song, “Necklace Stone”, which was recorded & mixed by Keith Abrams (Pine Barons, The Districts), to close out the year. Levelheaded vocals create a sense of calm, swaying seas, counterbalanced by the choppy grit of pace-establishing backend and escalating guitar. That steady build reaches unexpected heights in short order. Its sock-puppet video (with accompanying feline) playfully circles the globe.
