CREEPY: THIRD CULTURE KINGS - SUNSHINE FOR SADIE
Sunshine for Sadie is the latest to be taken from the forthcoming debut album 'Is That Light You Carry?' - out 18th August via 100.000/Internet & Weed.
‘Is That Light You Carry?’ is the debut record from Third Culture Kings, a new project led by Jan Johansen (Glorybox) and Alap Momin (dälek). Filtering classic vibes through modern interpretation, 3CK reimagine The Velvet Underground or Leonard Cohen as if they had been mixed by King Tubby and Afrika Bambaataa, all the while incorporating influences as diverse as Indian drone, early 80’s synth pads and Miami booty bass.
Cuts like ‘Seven Slayers’ send you on an arcane descent into alien subterranea, while ‘Sunshine For Sadie’ floats you across a dreamy, space-like universe. Elsewhere in tracks like ‘Flamingo’ and ‘Higher’, rock and roll guitars are juxtaposed with rattlesnake drums, creating ambient desert soundscapes perfect for an imagined intergalactic western. Throughout the record, hypnotic layers of sound and ambient psychedelics grip you to an electric-folk universe in which slow bubbling beats are matched with woozy flourishes and gently propellant melodies.
Personally, we're in love with the video that features many creepy dolls, malevolent vibes and a sad madness. If we're honest, if you could 'hear' Xanax, this is probably how it would sound. Don't play the video late at night and listen when you want to chill out and creep out.
