With five acclaimed releases in as many years, Mythic Sunship have long since established themselves amongst Europe’s finest purveyors of psychedelic music, effortlessly bridging the gap between heavy riff worship and expansive, free-jazz experimentation.
This September, the Copenhagen-based quintet (and self-proclaimed practitioners of ‘Anaconda Rock’) team up once again with New York’s legendary underground label Tee Pee Records, for the release of their sixth studio album, “Light/Flux”.
Simultaneously opening a new chapter on their journey, while razing the very foundations on which their previous output was built, the Scandinavian outfit are notorious for erratic, visceral, untameable musical singularities unleashed through improvisatory interplay. Showcasing that essence rare in its most primal form, unlike last year’s Wildfire, “Light/Flux” is the result of a more composed, melodic, and harmonious process, despite retaining the band’s signature penchant for unhinged spontaneity.
Recorded in Stockholm’s legendary RMV Studios over the course of four, chilly December days, Mythic Sunship’s unique sound and approach to creating records evokes the sound of John Coltrane joining Talk Talk. Wonderful moments of melancholy and bleakness, perched perfectly amidst the traditional fiery peaks the band is so well known for.
As exhilarating and electrifying as psychedelic records come, “Light/Flux” showcases Mythic Sunship’s scorched-earth approach in the search for new ideas and will be released on September 30th, 2022, via Tee Pee Records.
