Psychic Rites is hands down the most exciting band this year. Primo talent scouts Aural Sects debuted their self titled EP around new years and the label now gears up for a new EP to drop very soon. Psychic Rites are also fresh on planning a summer(USA) tour to compliment. Their latest music and tour promo vids drop my tiny jaw, proving this band understand the power of the moving image.
The track ‘Alone At Night’ hits with the right amount of pop, the right amount of synth, the right amount of melody and darkness – ugh! Gimme Psychic Rites naooooow. The video is outstanding. The best video I have seen an emerging/underground group accomplish since Ben Parmentier’s “Blue Rose” completely melted my brain! Um.. over two years ago. It is just pleasant and is exceptionally professional. Especially for a zero budget.
Check out some of Psychic Rites’ new stuff on soundcoud. I went a bit repost-frenzy when ‘Concrete’ was published. It. Is. Amazing. Sort yourself out with Psychic Rites now, because soon enough they will be untouchable.
