Perth’s Psychedelic Porn Crumpets are diving headfirst into their new era with the release of their new single, Lava Lamp Pisco. The first taste of new music since the release of their fourth studio album earlier this year, SHYGA! The Sunlight Mound, the track arrives alongside an animated visual, created by Bristol based animator Gina Tratt.


“After SHYGA! I wanted to write something a bit heavier, get back to the Sabbath roots and chug on a riff for yonks ‘til it hums like a Novocaine mantra. I wanted it to feel like it was constantly progressing, getting more chaotic with drones, swirling between dissonant layers and get the body jangling with a Tyson hook.” says frontman Jack McEwan.



“The lyrics weren't intentionally meant to be dark, I’ve always liked to keep our music upbeat and positive but some days it felt like everything was blurring into one, waiting for life to resume into some sense of normality. But what is normal? Change is good, variety is the spice of life and from these weird times I can truly say I've never been happier. So the Pisco of life continues, building with bulldozers, creating from rubble, chewing on bricks with a toothless optimism. It’s nice to feel rounded.”


Dropping earlier this year, the bands fourth studio album SHYGA! The Sunlight Mound is a carefully curated narrative of psych-rock that delves deeper into the sounds presented on their previous releases. There is a refinement to the records production, providing a more dynamic quality that is still laced with the frantic and energetic sounds that are a staple within the bands music.
