After teasing the release of their new album for Sdban Records earlier in May with ‘What Could Have Been‘, Condor Gruppe are back today to share ‘Farid’, the second single from Gulliver. The track “is their imaginative excursion to the charms of the desert, to the call of the wild, and the excitement of world music”, as the label describes. It comes with an accompanying video inspired by Sun Ra, The Psychedelic Experience and Nature. Watch it below.
Gulliver is out on September 23rd through Sdban Ultra
Spawned from two friends in 2012, Michiel Van Cleuvenbergen and Jan Wygers, Condor Gruppe are a Antwerp based nine-piece ensemble bonded over a shared love of Italian 70s film soundtracks, krautrock and psychedelic grooves. Using various instruments, including the handpan, Jew’s harp, darbouka and tanpura, Condor Gruppe “fuse the melancholy of Pink Floyd, the heroism of Ennio Morricone and the world grooves of GOAT”, as the press release describes.
The outfit has announced the release of a new album titled Gulliver, which will see the light of day on September 23rd through Sdban Ultra. Along with the news, Condor Gruppe have shared the first fascinating single, ‘What Could Have Been’, and you can listen to it below.
