Song For Dan Treacy underlines MGMT’s plan to head out into psych territory.
Treacy (of cult UK outfit Television Personalities) isn’t the only musical figurehead to get a song title on the album, but his name this early on is a big nod to the sort of influences at play here: late '60s psychedelia for sure, but also the playful neo-psychedelia of the '80s.
Song For Dan Treacy opens with Kinks-style guitars and a tinny bassline; these give way to a spooky Hammond organ that wails its way through the chorus. Everything harks back to a bygone age of body painting, bad trips and analogue instruments. Cool.
