Following on from Tschak!, the band’s second release on Rocket Recordings, GNOOMES have announced a string of UK tour dates in June.
Forging forth into unknown realms both physical and metaphysical, the band recently completed a UK tour – including an appearance at Liverpool International Festival Of Psychedelia. Their first release, Ngan, came out only eighteen months ago and has solidified their self-styled ‘stargaze’ approach, marking glorious collisions between melodic sweetness, skysurfing guitar experimentation and motorik propulsion.
“Our vocalist has been almost taken into the Russian Army, while some of us were caught by the police for being high, and the court sentenced [the members] to five days in prison and one year of visiting a narcologist every month,” the band relate. “We haven’t had an opportunity to use psychedelics during the recording process. It was a challenge for us to find the legal ways to make psych music without it, but we thought that it’s not so bad – we could find the best way in daily life and simple things that surrounded us.”
