Do you remember The Glove, that one-record-only project between Robert Smith, Steven Severin (Siouxsie and the Banshees) and the model-turned-singer Jeanette Landray? So Psychobuildings sound like if the best songs of that not great record had been lost and came to light nearly 30 years later. It has the voice that incredibly reminds that of Robert circa 1983; it has the bass sound so kind of funk on that record and on the Psychobuildings single; it has the weird electro-psychedelia as well. But anyway, these songs pay more interest to rhythm, mixing New Wave sounds with funk and shine without the need of comparing them to anything.
Psychobuildings, that started as a solo project of Peter LaBier has since expanded to include Juan Pieczanski (Small Black) and Peter Schuette (Silk Flowers) and released this first single on All Hands Electric in collaboration with Cass Club.
