Psychedelic thrills from Barcelona...

Barcelona's Holy Bouncer are taking their sound out on the road.

The neo-psychedelic crew have confirmed more than 50 shows across the continent, including a quickfire visit to the UK.

It couldn't be better time. Cult heroes in the Catalonian underground, Holy Bouncer recently overhauled their psychedelic psound to incorporate some cutting edge influences.

New single 'Mightly Mad' is a fine demonstration of where they could go next. Guitars drip with effects, while the lysergic vocals float from speaker to speaker.

It's the subtlety of sound, though, that really impresses; those tinkling piano notes, the way the drums gently power the song forward.

Holy Bouncer explain: “Sometimes when we are found facing ourselves, we don't really see exactly what we expected, but instead what we fear the most. Once the door to the subconscious is open monsters can get in, maybe we are just 'mightly mad'...”

“In this video we wanted to represent a trip towards the subconscious. For Tomas and I, the character metaphorically faces himself in solitude, where the deepest, darkest and most hidden thoughts surface. Sometimes they take the shape of something very unexpected. For us, the house represents the protagonists subconscious, the more he stays inside the more he is enveloped by something he can't really see, but it's there in his own thoughts.”

Tune in now.
