Psyence - Zebra

"One of the youngest bands to feature on the Liverpool International Festival of Psychedelia line up, Stoke quintet Psyence combine the melodic sensibilities of Tame Impala with the rhythmic thud of ‘Exterminator’-era Primal Scream and classic Can along with the bludgeoning blues riffs of The Dead Weather. Psyence construct tracks from rehearsal room jams based around colossal bass/synth motifs." The Quietus

Psyence released their debut single Zebra through The Sound of Salvation to coincide with their appearance at the Liverpool International Festival of Psychedelia.

Their powerful live performances effortlessly hark back to the ‘60s psychedelic rock wellspring and to an entirely original adolescent search for something far beyond the tame ‘sponsored-alternative’ current music scene.

Zebra and I Often Ponder showcase a band already confident far beyond their short lifespan in creating fully realised psychedelic anthems that are burnt firmly into the brain whilst handily frying it at the same time. Pye/Walsh/Comley/Bellingham/Nixon represent a departure from the dreary English guitar bands of the last few years and, equally, a thrilling reminder of the power of music to free your mind.
