"Bearing in mind that ‘’psych’’ is not an abbreviation of Psychedelia, what we have here, is a perfect example of a band throwing away the ‘’demon’’ word, which might lead you astray and presenting a debut album that is so much more. This five-piece from Athens, Greece is a joy to hear, as we watch the confrontation of so many genres and the unscratched exodus from the battle within.Insrumental ‘’Halcyon’’, with its effect galore presentation,leads to up-beat ‘’Nemesis’’ where the keyboards explore further a familiar territory of sounds. "Bed of the earth’’ is a European top-notch psych tune,worth its weight like any remarkable song Fuzz Club Records, has ever released. Rural psych-folk (‘’The Vine’’), slow tempo-guitar pedals board driven (‘’Icarus’’) and another armada of up-beat compositions, find the final track of this record (‘’Cacti’’) as the culmination of a psych trip you most certainly wish to start once more!
The album will be available on vinyl and digital format.
Physical copies will be available in two limited editions of high quality clear-copper & blue-white marbled coloured vinyl, 200 copies each!
