“San Francisco's The Spiral Electric is a psych-rock group with an acid-drenched sound that creeps and crawls into the recesses of your mind where it stays with you, kinda like those fuzzy college memories of when shit got weird. Much like the band's predecessor, The Brian Jonestown Massacre, The Spiral Electric's songs are hypnotic and build into a crescendo of sound. Lead vocalist Clay Andrews lends the band a distinct sound with his strong, clear voice and impressive range, anchored by synths, electric guitar riffs, and steady drumming.”
"The Spiral Electric‘s sound can be captivatingly dramatic; each piece is colorful in a black-light acid-trip sort of way, and reveals new and interesting moments with each and every listen. Their songs creep in and out of the faintest trickles of sound, leading your mind into a sort of kaleidoscopic rabbit hole. One feels the climax(es) approach from several measures down the road over large instrumental sections; inevitable, yet lurking, each hurdle more hypnotic than the last, as spacey synth sounds, electric guitars, and hauntingly distant vocals lure the listener into new, far-out worlds. There is a retro jam-band, Verve-era indie flavor to The Spiral Electric. Their songs sound best live, like mini-acid trips at an incredible outdoor concert in the heat of summer, each track a complete introspective experience in their own right."
