With five acclaimed releases in as many years, Copenhagen-based quintet Mythic Sunship have established themselves among Europe’s finest purveyors of psychedelic music, bridging the gap between heavy riff worship and expansive, free-jazz experimentation.
With their sixth studio album Wildfire due for release this April – their first on New York’s legendary underground label, Tee Pee Records – Denmark’s most experimental sons simultaneously open a new chapter on their journey, while razing the foundations on which their previous albums were built. Recorded over the course of four intense days in Stockholm’s vintage RMV Studio, the album documents the erratic, visceral, untameable musical singularity that Mythic Sunship becomes once unleashed in improvisatory interplay.
Working with legendary Danish punk Per Buhl Acs behind the mixing desk, the group has reinvented itself to produce an album which showcases that essence rare, in its most primal form. Fusing together raw kinetic outbursts, Wildfire takes the listener from groovy fuzz rock and cosmic jams into territories centred around crunched melodies, turbulent rhythms and ecstatic walls of guitar insanity. As best exemplified on new single ‘Maelstrom’ with its frenzied wails of electric dissonance as their self-proclaimed “anaconda rock” collides with furious freak-outs and lysergic saxophony.
As exhilarating as psychedelic records come, Wildfire showcases Mythic Sunship’s scorched-earth approach in the search for new ideas and will be released on 2nd April 2021 via Tee Pee Records. However, you can stream their new single ‘Maelstrom’ over at Metal Injection right here, ahead of its official release on 5th February.
