SONG OF THE DAY Slift – The Sword

“A deafening mass where both guitar and drums, aligned formation, repeat repetitive riffs. The frenzied swaying and incessant screams are resolutely garage, but like the sacrosanct Oh Sees, the psychedelic music of the 70’s (kraut and space rock at the head of the line) is never far away”.

This is how the French 3-piece, Slift, describe their sound and if Thee Oh Sees, Damaged Bug and all things psychedelic float your boat, you are in for a treat here!!

Inspired by the likes of Can, Hawkwind, Brant Bjork, Jimi Hendrix, Muddy Waters and many more eclectic influences, Slift have managed to not only to replicate these sounds, but have them mashed up, mixed them around and created their very own psychedelic take…and the result will fill your ears and leave you wanting more!

This June the band are to release their debut EP, Space is the Key, via Howlin’ Banana and Exag Records , with their first mind-bending offering from this EP available now!  The Sword is packed full of chunky fuzzed-out guitar riffs, hefty drum beats and cosmic laser beam sounds, all of which come at you in a fast-paced frenzy of garage punk.  Listen above.

Purchase your copy of The Sword from here.   Space Is The Key is out June 16th on Howlin’ Banana Rds and Exag’ Rrds.
