I hoped they could pull this stuff off live, and they certainly can.
Great psychedelic layered sound is captured beautifully.
Nothing here disappoints but 6am also stands out for me.
A small investment that brings great rewards.
Favorite track: Mercury Rise.
January, 2015: A new year’s hurricane is ravaging Bergen. Its aftermath rips and tears into the Western Norwegian town for a week. In Broen Studio, where Electric Eye are plugged in, the walls constantly shake from lightning, thunder, violent downpours and wind. It probably isn’t a coincidence that “Different Sun”, album number two from the quartet, is a record full of fickle and dramatic energy. It’s veritably crackling from fuzz guitars and psychedelic organs. Electric Eye have definitely landed. In the eye of the hurricane.
Right after the release of «Different Sun», Electric Eye filled Blå in Oslo to the brim, and since both the band and the audience were so pleased with the concert, it will now also be made available to those who weren’t there. So the concert won’t be a myth anymore, now everyone can say that they «were there». Come with us into the eye of the hurricane, up to the stage and into the sphere.
I am just old enough to remember clearly when psychedelia was new. We didn't shorten it to "psych". This is pure and true psychedelic magic, and IMO is far too authentic to be labeled "neo". It works its spell without the need for any mind-enhancing aids. All you need is the ability to hear, plus the willingness to let this take over your thoughts and occupy your whole headspace. The cosmos in your own head. Absolutely wonderful!
