Leicester & Hamburg based dark experimental psych gazers ‘Children of Leir’ have unleashed a gargantuan sonic behemoth in the form of their latest single, the brilliant ‘Shades’. The track is a cover version of the Lee Hazlewood song of the same name and it doesn’t disappoint. It’s also the first single to be lifted from their forthcoming new album which is penned in for release on the August 25th 2016. ‘Shades’ is only available to buy/download from: childrenofleir.bandcamp.com
‘Shades’ is a dark fuzzy ball of glistening sonic energy that drones as it skips along its designated path, deliciously perched upon a skittish bed of motorik-driven percussive patterns. The swirling mass of reverberating noise carefully circumnavigates that addictive duel vocal attack as those organ crescendo’s tease and the hypnotically charged instrumentation instils both giddying excitement & atmospheric trepidation all at once.
