KAPU Psych Fest Tag 2: New Candys, Tentacula, Fvzz Popvli, The Vampyres
“Mixing brooding psychedelia with post-punk stylings, the record captures the full intensity of their live show with devastating results.” Drowned in Sound
Worldwide acclaimed as one of the best rock’n’roll emerging band around, New Candys will finally return to KAPU!
Hailing from Venice (Italy) with three records released through Fuzz Club, they toured Europe extensively including Liverpool Psych Fest 2016, Fuzz Club Eindhoven 2018 and Levitation France 2019, and more recently Australia (headlining both Sydney and Melbourne Psych Fest and performing at the Adelaide Fringe), and North America twice with shows in Mexico, Canada and United States, performing at the legendary Pappy & Harriet's in Joshua Tree and Mercury Lounge in New York among others, recording a KEXP live session too. Some of their songs are featured on episodes of Showtime Networks original TV series "Shameless". They shared the stage with The Brian Jonestown Massacre, The Dandy Warhols, The Warlocks, Slowdive etc.
Release the... eeehmm... Kraken? Or are we talking about another gigantic cosmic creature both divine and demonic whose arrival means the end of the world as we know it?
It might also be seen as a symbol that shows the awe and admiration for both the only flying mermal and possibly the smartest creature living in the oceans. In any case also as a hommage to H.P. Lovecraft’s Cthulhu and Sir Christopher Lee’s impersonation of Bram Stoker’s Dracula.
Long story short... whatever you may interpret into Tentacula...
The name is their program!
And this mystical neologism keeps its promise:
dark, reverb-drenched melodies and haunting riffs create a refreshing blend, somewhere between dreamy psychedelic- and dirty garage-rock. Spiced up with a very distinct female voice that might come from the queen of darkness herself who summons the gods of Liquid Thunder together with her fellow cultists.
