The Dutch psychedelic trio DEWOLFF will release their new album “Thrust” on May 4 through Mascot Records and to celebrate this event they will be playing a special show at The Black Heart, London on Tuesday, May 15th.
The band was formed in the Netherlands in 2007 by brothers Pablo and Luka van de Poel with Robin Piso. They worked with award-winning Grammy producer Mark Neill [Black Keys] for their 2014 Grand Southern Electric release. At around that time they suggested they wanted to take their audiences back to a period when Zeppelin, Cream, Pink Floyd and Deep Purple dominated the world.
We had a listen to “Thrust” —
Track “Deceit & Woo” [shared below] written on the day of Trump’s inauguration, is a velvety-style rattlesnake of a song with precise and vivid percussion and voices flavored by the spirit of Mojo Risin.
There’s more zap and boogie in “California Burning” — a blues rock number with bass waves, synth swallows and guitar fizzes. This song is squelchier and slightly more psychedelic than the others, with some ingenious Al Jardine-style vocal moments.
The release is fantastic news for all psych stoner rock fans or just anyone who wants to re-live those “Strange Days” circa 1967.
