Nigel Carr reviews the explosive new track and video by Australia’s Psychedelic Porn Crumpets!

We get hundreds of emails a week asking us to write about new bands so it’s rare that we jump on something so totally. This came crashing into my inbox yesterday and I haven’t stopped playing it since! I give you Psychedelic Porn Crumpets! Now that’s how to name a band!

They have produced one of the biggest sounds I have heard this year with the hook-driven track Cornflake. It seems to be the era of big hooks in songs with Human, Take Me To Church and Tom Walker’s Leave The Light On dominating the charts but frankly, this monstrous tune blows everything else out of the water!

The biggest Zeppelin style riff collides with a dreamy Tame Impala meets Jesus and The Mary Chain’s psychedelic dream to produce a two-speed pantechnicon that grabs you by the throat from the first note, throttles you wildly before dropping you, gasping and searching for more.

The accompanying mad psychedelic, mind-blowing video is produced by Mike Wyatt (Attack Animation)!

What they say:

Having burst onto the scene in their homeland, releasing their first two LPs to widespread national acclaim, alongside supports with Royal Blood, Dune Rats & Black Mountain, the band have developed a staunch grassroots following with their captivating blend of psychedelia.  Ahead of their debut UK tour this September, the quartet have delivered an entrancing video for Cornflake, discussing their ideas in detail:

“Existence is a strange concept so we wanted to create an animation that explores the idea of how weird life is. Even after all the soul-searching, religious preaching and spiritual journeys there is not one answer to anything. The video salutes to the song perfectly, venting more energy, colour and strangeness that leaves most people perplexed. It’s sometimes hard to grasp we’re one of a billion grains of rice in a huge sushi roll; the video reinstates that awareness, so stop worrying and do something you care about before the aliens invade”.

Following on from Cornflake, the band will be re-releasing their first two LPS High Visceral Pt 1 & Pt 2 on a limited edition gatefold double vinyl. Limited to 1000 copies, the vinyl will be a UK/EU edition released 10th September and is available to pre-order here.
