British four-piece Japanese Television captured our imagination when they introduced their furious fusion of post-punk, psychedelia and krautrock with exhilarating single ‘Bloodworm’ earlier this year.
The foursome have returned with new single ‘Slime’ and while those three aforementioned components remain front and centre, it is more foreboding than furious. The mood is glowering and sinister and the drone is very much in evidence. ‘Slime’ is propelled along a relentless, chugging groove, meaty bassline, burning guitars and kraut rhythms over minor keys,eerie tones and spooky feedback. Gripping and tense, there’s no let up in intensity – this is imaginative, dark and hard edged psych-rock of the very finest order.
Tune into ‘Slime’ below and if you like what you hear, their latest EP is here too.
