Hey Ho Trip and Go

Release date: 2022-11-18. A psychedelic rock track based on some old lyrics by Syd Barrett, or actually by the English poet Sir Henry Newbolt. Long story short: In 1968 Syd took some lyrics from an old nursery rhyme called "Rilloby-Rill" for his song "Octopus". Now Friendly Antenna has made a song about it. Fun for the whole family! A tribute to Syd, psychedelic London and the UFO club. It's all in the song.

Walking on the Sun

Release date: 2022-10-17. Third single with a strong basement boogie rock vibe. 'Walking on the Sun' was originally written and recorded as a cassette demo by the underground act Homo Erectus back in the late 90s. Now, 25 years later, Friendly Antenna has recorded his own version of the song.

Falling for UFOs

Release date: 2022-09-02. A catchy uptempo buzzing fuzz song in the style of a 60s psych garage dancer.
