From the upcoming debut album ‘Must Be A Dream’ (September 30th), comes ‘Mushroom Cloud’.
“‘Mushroom Cloud’ was the first song that we completed on the album and it set the tone for a balance of familiarity, the element of surprise and the weighty dark topics that I wanted to explore,” recalled singer Toma Banjanin. “Mushroom Cloud isn’t my story, though. I found it easier to write this song as a confession from the perspective of the antagonist. It’s equal measures apology, justification and threat, the kind of confusing grey area that only exists within intimate relationships. It’s love that becomes all-consuming and suffocating. It’s that destructive primal default buried deep within each of us. The Saboteur present in every moment of regret…that will do or say anything in an attempt at self preservation.”
A wide-eyed excursion of folk-tinged psychedelia with nods to Spiritualized, Galaxie 500, the Flaming Lips and the Beach Boys, ‘Must Be A Dream’ comprises ten tracks of psychedelic pop grandiosity.
The band consists of Toma, Andy Banjanin, Eric Weber, Kane Reynolds, Blake Misipeka.
They’re a must.
