Back with a banger, Australian psych-rockers Psychedelic Porn Crumpets have released new track ‘Lava Lamp Pisco’.

Of the new single, frontman Jack McEwan says “After Shyga! I wanted to write something a bit heavier, get back to the Sabbath roots and chug on a riff for yonks till 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.

“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.”

Accompanied by an animated video by Bristol-based animator artist Gina Tratt, Jack adds, “As soon as we saw Gina’s work we all really wanted to collaborate and work together on a project. The idea was to follow the drone aspect of the track, build a playful landscape for midnight youtube trippers to gobble up while outlining the expendable nature our mundane working routines, slice that up with some greedy corporate overlord whose main objective is to deplete the world of all resources for capitalistic gains and voila! You’ve got a Lava Lamp Pisco. Old mate Bezzy was the inspiration. Gina’s an absolute hero! We love what she’s created and hope that everyone enjoys our dark little episode.”
