King Gizzard and the Lizard Wizard share new track ‘Rattlesnake’
Pioneering the new wave of psychedelic rock, King Gizzard have released yet another song; it’s getting hard to keep up with all of their new material. In fact the Aussie boys claim that they will be releasing five albums in 2017 alone, how? I have no idea; singer Stu Mackenzie reckons he will “lose my mind by the end of the year” and if he doesn’t then I would be very impressed.
As for the tune itself, it is 8 minutes of scuzzy bass lines, restless rhythms and even the occasional harmonica. I managed to catch their set at Latitude a couple of years back and it was one of the maddest sets I’ve seen to date, the members had to be crammed on the stage but that didn’t stop them from creating a dusty rout. Mackenzie and co have also released an unbelievably trippy music video to coincide with the psychedelia of the song so you can check that out below.
