Single Review: Sex Helicopter ‘Man’ by Andi HHM

By on May 17, 2014

Sex Helicopter

Ok, first, let me start by saying, I just love saying Sex Helicopter, feels naughty but somewhat intelligent at the same time. Although I don’t encourage people to google it, you will find some freaky shit that has nothing to do with this band’s music.

Listening to Sex Helicopter’s newest single, “Man”, is like riding in a tie-dyed, low rider El Camino listening to “Oye Como Va” out of one speaker, Foster the People vocals out of another, throwing in some Doors-style organ and Hendrix riffs.

Bad ass yet really trippy.

“Man” showcases edgier guitars with more of a Latin undertone than Sex Helicopter’s first offering, “Everything As It Should Be”. Their fusion of 70s sounds coalesces into a new version of old school hard rock a la Santana laced with dreamy, kaleidoscopic synthesizer complete with record crackles.

The five twenty-something guys out of Los Angeles released their first single, “Everything As It Should Be” in March 2014. Sex Helicopter, though having played together for only a year, performs as a group which has been around much longer. Several band members have collaborated, musically and lyrically, for over a decade.

The retro, psychedelic vibes will continue with an anticipated debut EP this summer. Fans of Sex Helicopter will be scouring thrift shops for crushed velvet and bell bottoms to match the 70s grooves that this band is laying down.
