New Video: King Gizzard & The Lizard Wizard – “The River”

KG&LWMelbourne’s finest perveyors of psychedelia induced garage rock King Gizzard & The Lizard Wizard, are set to release their latest full length offering Quarters next month.

The record will feature four songs, each lasting an even 10 minutes & 10 seconds in length, and so to tide us over, the seven piece have unleashed a trippy new video for the album’s opening track; ‘The River’.

Like everything else these Lizard boys have put their name to, ‘The River’ encompasses their love of all things psychedelia, krautrock and Nuggets era garage rock. The first segment of the tune includes hushed vocal harmonies that sit alongside an incredibly catchy guitar lick, that when combined can’t help but get stuck on repeat in your head.

At the three minute mark it seagues effortlessly into an instrumental jam that oozes pure pyschedelic ecstacy, and if you closed your eyes you could imagine floating down your nearest estury soaking in each passing note.

With ‘The River’ being the first full taste of what Quaters has to offer – an edited version of ‘God is in the Rhythm’ was released previously – then we are in for one hell of a ride!

Quarters will be availble through Flightless (Aus) Heavenly Recordings (UK/EU) & Castle Face (US) on My 25th.
