Strange Collective

STRANGE Collective is a name that has been thrown around Liverpool over the last year, with many people hinting at their destined success within the industry. So when they dropped their debut release, 'Sun' on 13th February, the music world naturally halted to praise their ethereal sound.

Snapped up by Widnes based label, Salvation Records, the psych quartet saw themselves being added to a list of highly hypnotic artists such as Electroshock Therapy and Psyence.

Picked for a multitude of shows, the four lads have seen themselves play Liverpool Psych and Sound City Festival to supporting the likes of The GOASTT and The Black Lips - so upon hearing 'Sun', it becomes very clear why Strange Collective have already achieved such great success.

Pungent beginnings set a jumped up edge to the single, forcing a richly concocted body of ripened chords mixed with a scuzzy transformation to compliment the echoing vocality. Squirming around a backdrop of distorted fuzz, the vision of the sun rising certainly bites at the thought of something screeching within the backstreet's of an abstract universe, partnered with a set of hefty beats which thump within a monstrous ideology clinging to the instrumental. 'Sun' is grounded yet the highly acidic tune, intelligently surviving by itself, giving the biggest inclination to the new dawn of British psychedelia.

Be sure to get down to Strange Collective's EP Launch, 28th February at 24 Kitchen Street, support comes from ohmns, Rongorongo and Bernie Connor and tickets £4.
