Look Through the Keyhole by Worldcub: Review
Cynyr (guitar & vocals) and Dion Hamer (drums & percussion) are brothers and the driving force behind the North Wales band Worldcub. They first released songs as “CaStLeS,” drawing inspiration from Paul McCartney from the 1970s and 1980s. They record in a homemade studio in the hills of Eryri, fusing surf guitar with kraut rock grooves and psychedelic Cymru melodies. The band’s track “Look Through the Keyhole” is a groovy psychedelic track that has interesting chord progressions, and a truly sensational bass line!
The vocal progressions in the entirety of the song are quite trippy. Worldcub managed to blend an excellent style of reverb with clean harmonies. The result is something quite mysterious and a joy to hear. The main rhythm structure is on the guitar’s strumming pattern, and the main riff section follows a 70s-style psychedelic rock pattern. The drum work is incredible and the transitions have a brilliant synergy with the drum rolls and sequences. There are some atmospheric noises via synthesizers that allow the song to enter a dream-like state. This aura is quite strong, and the band maintains the pacing of the song excellently.
Overall, “Look Through the Keyhole” is a splendid number. The tune is quite catchy and follows through on the band’s influences. The title of the track is also quite poetic and creative, and I truly admire the musician’s efforts throughout the song’s elements. “Look Through the Keyhole” by Worldcub is available for streaming, please do check it out!
