Black Lizard bring us the video for 'Sinking Ship'; the second single to be taken from 'Celebration of a New Dawn', their new LP out now.
Following the release of the band's incredible third album,Â Black Lizard have shared the new video for â€˜Sinking Shipâ€™, the second single to be taken from Celebration Of A New Dawn. The track effortlessly showcases the darker side to Black Lizard's whirling psychedelic qualities. Ditching the sunsoaked garage-pop of first single 'Window In Time' for a darker, organ-led 60s sound. Stream the video below.
Talking about the single, vocalist Joni SeppÃ¤nens explains: "I took the idea from 60's psychedelia, in which it was often the case where the guitars were mixed down and the emphasis was on organ melodies. This is how the song gets it's 'threatening' vibe, which is well suited to a song which talks of the end of an era and the beginning of a new one.â€Â
||Since forming back in 2008,Â Black LizardÂ haveÂ been busy leading the charge in the ever-fruitful Scandinavian underground with their relentless gig schedule and aÂ constant streamÂ of releases. Theyâ€™ve collaborated with the likes ofÂ Anton NewcombeÂ andÂ Sonic Boom (Spacemen 3/Spectrum)Â and toured Europe several times, appearingÂ at aÂ number of festivals includingÂ Great EscapeÂ as well as sharing the stage with everyone fromÂ Brian Jonestown Massacre,Â DIIV, The Men, The Horrors, Allah-LasÂ andÂ Veronica Falls.
'Celebration Of A New Dawn' is the third long-player from Black Lizard and without a doubt their best work yet. Recorded in the basement of a rundown 50s movie theatre turned recording studio, the new album is a sublime excursion into Sixties-indebted, washed-out garage-pop that manages to be unapologetically nostalgic yet carve out its own glorious lysergic pastiche - repackaging the finestÂ NuggetsÂ cutsÂ and the neo-psychedelic march of the late 80s/early 90s for 21st-century wastoids.
