about

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. Instrumental ‘’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!

Track Name: Nemesis
The night creates the doom on the earth
The night creates the fate on the earth

The night creates the death on the earth
The night creates the sleep on the earth

The night creates the dreams on the earth
The night creates nemesis
Track Name: Bed Of The Earth
Γη των ανέμων

You lay yourself on the bed of the earth
There's no place like home in the universe

Down on the bed of the earth
Out of the universe
Track Name: The Vine
Until the river turns to wine
You'll find the way back to your house
It's getting warmer in the night
It makes no sense at all

And you will hold the pitcher high
And dance the night until it's gone
It's getting colder in the light
It makes no sense at all
Track Name: Golden Light
I see her painted eyes on every road that I'm on
Hew falling clouds are made of white and blue and I'm on
Don't ever try to understand the way that she talks
It's gonna take a while you can't make it happen

I see her calling me in every morning dream and she's gone
I'm running back in time through a golden light and she's gone
Don't even try to understand the way that she walks
It's gonna take a while you can't make it happen
Track Name: Αφροδίτη
Hunt the light
Hunt the light
Hunt the light
Hunt the light

On her toes
Αφροδίτη
On her toes

Find the sun under her skin
Find the sun under her skin
Find the sun under her skin
Find the sun under her skin
Αφροδίτη
Track Name: Bend The Trees
She was back in the morning
I heard the sound of the trees
Her long cold fingers
Her feet on the leaves
Bend the trees

We were married on white sands
In a full moon breeze
She was holding a poniard
I had the ring
Bend the trees
Track Name: Icarus
It's getting kind of strange
We look synchronized
Following the truth
I can see the space in your eyes

Chained to the sun
How far can we fly
Until we melt down
I can see the space in your eyes
Track Name: Ice Giants
Under the waterclouds form thunderstorms
We'll find a place to hide
Out of the light

And if the blue and light reach the human eye
We'll take the dark wind one last time
Out of the light

I had a dream last night
We fell down from the sky
No place to hide
Out of the light
Track Name: Cacti
Tame the fire
Hold me up
We're falling higher
Crawling back
You must have known it
Been here before
You can touch me when I'm gone

It's been a long time
It's all the same
Your hands are cacti
Throwing shade
You must have known it
Been here before
You can touch me when I'm gone
