The Morning After Girls guitarist/vocalist Martin B. Sleeman cannot wait to leave Australia again, and he means it in the nicest way possible.

When the five-piece first landed on American shores, they were greeted by what he calls "beautiful people" -- namely, members of Brian Jonestown Massacre and the Warlocks, who pegged the Morning After Girls as an opening act. The band recently completed an international tour, which included dates in London with the Jesus And Mary Chain.

The act's brand of psych-rock and dream-pop echoes Spiritualized and Supergrass, with spacey vocals and daring guitar drones. Its two EPs were given a U.S. release via Rainbow Quartz as "Prelude: EPs 1 & 2."

"The closer we are to America and Europe, the closer we are to people who appreciate that kind of music we do," Sleeman says.
