Russian electronic psych-rock trio Gnoomes have a second album on the way, Tschak!, following their 2015’s debut Ngan!. Set for release on March 10th through Rocket Recordings, the album came to life amidst turbulent times in their home country. The band explains:
“Our vocalist has been almost taken into the Russian Army, while some of us were caught by the police for being high, and the court sentenced (the members) to five days in prison and one year of visiting a narcologist every month, so we haven’t had an opportunity to use psychedelics during the recording process. It was a challenge for us to find the legal ways to make psych music without it, but we thought that it’s not so bad, we could find the best way in daily life and simple things that surrounded us.”
The propulsive and hypnotic ‘Cascais’ is the latest single to be let loose from Tschak!. Take a listen below.
