Painting Pictures is a swirling vortex of pounding drums and steely vocals that gives way to a melodic, trance-inducing riff


Check out stunning new single Painting Pictures and you'll be closing your eyes and doing that weird shaman dance with your hands before you know it.


in debut single Painting Pictures they’ve got something of a space rock classic.

Get Into This

Spun through a ghostly web of Halloween special effects squalls, ‘Painting Pictures’ stomps insistent drums, hollers fractured vocals and flicks splinters of underwater guitar stabs. Adding a goth dash of atmosphere to shoegaze, this is stylish stuff.On the flip side, ‘Starfucker Blues’ (beat that for a title) has a hard-hitting snake hipped welter-weight champeen of a riff.


They’re a band destined for the stars based on this creative masterpiece.B-side Starfucker Blues, with it’s 13th Floor Elevators / My Bloody Valentine whirlwind of noise and tambourine beating Primal Scream / Brian Jonestown Massacre influence deserves to be a single of it’s own right.
