Sonic Jesus share new 'Dead Man' 7"

Italy's Sonic Jesus released their superb new single 'Dead Man' 7".

Sonic Jesus are one of the most revered outputs in the modern psych-rock scene. Following a split-single with Austin heavyweights The Black Angels, in 2015 they released the hypnotic, droning psych-rock of their debut 'Neither Virtue Nor Anger' to international acclaim. Earlier this year they released LP2, titled ‘Grace’ it saw the band reinvent themselves, delving into more melodic, synth-driven horizons and channelling an expansive 80s-indebted new wave/post-punk sound. Following a deep creative frenzy on the road during the European tour in support of 'Grace, Sonic Jesus are back already with two new songs – pushing past previous boundaries once again and reappearing with a new-found direction. The two new tracks take the impassioned, introspective post-punk of Grace and take it down a sinister path. Whilst the reverb-drenched vocals, 80s synths and drum machines are still there, this is a far darker affair – the haunting, motorik psych-rock of their early material coming back with a vengeance.
Talking of the tracks, Tiziano Veronese, the mastermind behind Sonic Jesus, explains: “’Dead Man’ is a blind rage with no point of return. The strong bass line and synths depict a disturbing, claustrophobic atmosphere. ‘Transpose’ changes direction towards a kraut landscape, a chaos quickly dissolved in a folk jam. The lyrics are mainly focused on how humans brutalise themselves as time goes by so that loneliness becomes a fine shelter where to feel comforted by dreams, arts and distant desires.”
