Sounds | Dommengang - Society Blues

Het lijkt wel alsof er terug serieus wat aan de paddo's gezeten wordt: psychrockbands schieten als paddenstoelen uit de grond. Bijna zie ik door het bos de bomen niet meer. Zoals steeds puur op gevoel afgaan en deze eruit filteren die me iets doen, die vrijwel meteen vlot binnenkomen. Dit trio uit Portland bv.: ferme drive, knappe riffs, wat spacy sounds, passende productie en een zang die me ligt.

Wished Eye verschijnt op 21 april 2023 via Thrill Jockey Records

Ter Info

Power trio Dommengang deliver heavy psych rock on new album Wished Eye, out April 21st. The album delivers super tasty, dirty guitars, serpentine psychedelic grooves, and propulsive drumming with gleeful abandon. First single "Society Blues" builds to an exuberant explosion of crisp, blues-laden guitar lines that soar over a driving rhythm section, bringing to mind the 1970’s power of a Louis Dambra solo. The dynamic song is carried by ascendant vocals, the band stretching out at the midway point and expanding into the outer world, giving the listener a taste of their explorative live shows. Wished Eye is the studio album of a band that, live, ignites chaotic release and otherworldly meditation. To capture this energy and freedom in the studio, the trio tracked all the songs together to tape and let experimentation run wild. Working without time constraints or limitations, they could dig deeper into their ever expanding lines, their songs expanding as the guitar explores. Dommengang's sheer joy of making music together, delivered with skill, imagination and abandon, make Wished Eye an immersive journey without ever leaving home – what a trip it is. Dommengang will be touring Europe this spring following the release of Wished Eye, including performances at Roadburn Festival and Desert Fest London. More worldwide tour dates and festivals to be announced.
