Brain-melting psych/jazz/tech-metal/rock trio The Physics House Band have stepped up anticipation for their new mini album ‘Mercury Fountain’ by releasing new single ‘Obidant’.
Sprinting from one idea to the next with barely time for a mid-song breather, ‘Obidant’ is about “taking a violent journey into the tumultuous and insane furthest reaches of the mind” according to bassist Adam Hutchinson.
The Physics House Band, whose name is taken from an Alexander Calder Sculpture, were formed when Hutchinson met guitarist Sam Organ and drummer Dave Morgan at university in Brighton after all of their respective bands had broken up.
Shortly after they recorded their first mini album ‘Horizons’, an accomplished debut packed full of frantic percussion, left-field experimentation and seriously advanced composition.
The new record will see the band upping the insanity levels even further. Recorded with Joel Magill and Raven Bush at Wicker Studios in Kent, ‘Mercury Fountain’ follows a hallucinogenic journey across parallel universes and astral planes and will include 100% more jazz flute and saxophone than their debut.
