Track Of The Day: THE HOWLING FOG “The Needle’s Falling”

Track Of The Day The Howling Fog

We are often used to hanging out with bands from Melbourne or Sidney, this time we move to the capital of Southern Australia, Adelaide, from where hail The Howling Fog, a psych-shoegaze quartet, comprised of Paul Thomas (guitar), Bennett Sandhu (bass), Peter Blunden (vocals & guitar) and Joel Derham (drums), on the way to release, two years from the S/T debut 4-tracker, their sophomore EP “Drifting” due out in late 2019.

The poignant, gut-wrenching first single “The Needle’s Falling” slowly and relentlessly flows over hazily dense, darkness-infused, frantic yet fiercely mesmerizing, delay and reverb charged, lysergic distortions, backed by sturdy drums and thick basslines, gloomily pervaded with unbridled energy and haunting loss as deep magnetic vocals, sharpened by heavily aching shards of searing guitar bleeds, seep louder unto uncompromising and ruthless anxiety, dripping with anger, and regret, dwelling in dead-end obscurity.
