Lucid Sins - "Joker's Dance" (audio)

Learn to know the secrets of the soul
As we chart a course through space and time
Life beyond the body may be whole
Come along and see what you can find

This is death and death is one and all
Now existing out of mortal roles
Travelling all distance in no time
Understanding all there is to know

Still, without a sound, lungs not breathing
No pulse to be found, heart stopped beating
Rise away from the ground, no solace in grieving
Is this where the journey begins or am I leaving?

Could it be the secret of it all
Is no more than laughing at your life
Playing all your cards the way, they fall
Will you hold your hand or roll the dice?

Οι Lucid Sins μας έρχονται από την μεγαλύτερη πόλη της Σκωτίας (Γλασκόβη). Σχηματίσθηκαν προ οκταετίας από τον Andreas Jonsson και τον Ruaraidh Sanachan. Μπάντα της οποίας το μουσικό ύφος παραπέμπει στο 70ς ψυχεδελικό progressive rock, με το συγκρότημα να χαρακτηρίζει την πρόταση του ως: «Occult AOR».

Το 2014 κυκλοφόρησε το ντεμπούτο των Lucid Sins υπό τον τίτλο "Occultation". Ο διάδοχός του βρίσκεται... καθ' οδόν. Τιτλοφορείται "Cursed!" κι αναμένεται στις αρχές Μαΐου...

Δελτίο τύπου: «Seven years after their masterful debut album ’Occultation’, Scottish 70s psychedelic and progressive rockers Lucid Sins are finally ready to deliver their new studio full-length ‘Cursed!’, due out May 3rd on Totem Cat Records.

From the riff-centric and silky 70s occult and psychedelic hymns of their impressive 2014 debut full-length 'Occultation', the Glasgow-based duo has morphed into a bigger and more ambitious beast to craft their sophomore album 'Cursed!'.

Inviting various musicians from their entourage to hop on the Lucid Sins train, the group delivers an organic and intrinsically more progressive 8-track, fueled by an intoxicating dose of keys and violins, liquid-fingered and at time jazz-tinged riffage and Andreas Jonsson's overdubbed vocals, harking back to the likes of Wishbone Ash, Blue Öyster Cult or even The Doors in their more entrancing meanderings.

With a surrealistic artwork from Britain's early 20th century illustrator Alan Odle, 'Cursed!' makes for a must-have piece of 70s progressive rock. 'Cursed!' will be issued on May. Lucid Sins is Ruaraidh Sanachan and Andreas Johnsson, the heads who brought an explosive freeform psychedelia to Glasgow’s live scene through their first band Moon Unit.

With their Totem Cat Records debut 'Oscillation' (2014) -not to mention their stellar cover of Medusa's "Black Wizard"- the Scottish duo drew attention to their darkness-tinged brand of 70s psych and classic rock, making a storming entrance among their proto-metal peers Uncle Acid & The Deadbeats, Witchcraft or Dead Meadow.

'Oscillation' draped itself in a stunning Alasdair Gray sleeve, which set the tone for their occult-driven ventures. In 2021, Lucid Sins return to the scene forefront with their sophomore full-length 'Cursed!', to be issued on May 3rd through independent Britanny-based powerhouse Totem Cat Records.»

  1. Occult AOR; Που πάνε και τα βρίσκουν; Πάντως το κομμάτι είναι καλό.

    1. Έλα ντε. Ψάχνουν για κάτι "πιασάρικο" να ξεχωρίζει...
