Hey Colossus have recently announced their second album of the year, Radio Static High, and shared the single “Hop The Railings”. The London/Somerset 6-piece released their highly rated ‘In Black and Gold’ back in February but have already created it’s follow up which is due out October 2 via Rocket Recordings.
Having been together for nearly twelve years the band have perfected their sound, finding their own unique niche nestled in the realms of desert-psych and hypnotic electronic melodies. “Hop The Railings” is six minutes of trance-inducing, psych-rock, it’s driving, it’s compelling and has a driving rhythm that mesmerizes; is this what would happen if you merged Kyass with The Units?!….
Guitarist Jonathan Richards said of the record: “We have noticed a small wave of incredible goodwill towards us. We want to give as we receive. Maybe the knowledge of our 12 years together makes us aware of our mortality. Time is limited. A band’s purpose is to create… after 12 years functioning in a Noiserock/Doom/Kraut/whatatever scene of sorts and being aware of unwanted repetition, we feel it is more subversive for us to compose songs with rigid song structures than it is to absentmindedly clang off another riff-athon… everything is the same for us, but we might have just a little more vision and discipline.”
