Following the European release of their second album ‘Stranded In Arcadia‘, French heavy psych trio MARS RED SKY unveiled a tripped-out video for new song ‘Hovering Satellites‘. Directed by their friend Colin Manierka, the video “blends live footage – captured by Bartosch Salmanski – with psychedelic color work, space scenes and wave patterns, all feeding into the atmosphere of the song itself“. The 11-track record was recorded in Rio De Janeiro by Gabriel Zander at Superfuzz Studio during their South American tour last year.
Here’s what Jeremy said about the ‘Stranded In Arcadia‘ recently:
“There are those albums you just know are going to be good from the opening seconds of the initial spin. This is one of them. Following their acclaimed self titled debut, Mars Red Sky brings us ‘Stranded In Arcadia’, a psych/blues rock opus with enough ‘Howls From The Hills’ era Dead Meadow-isms to make you think they bottled Simon and Co.’s ‘White Worm‘ and drank the ever living shit out of it.”
Within only three years, MARS RED SKY have established themselves as a major groundbreaker of the European psychedelic and heavy scene. Their first eponymous album raised the bar high with its blending of heavy psychedelia, melodic vocals and fuzz-drenched desert grooves: a real trip for the heart and soul. Now, French fuzzlords Julien Pras, Jimmy Kinast and Mathieu Gazeau are back with their second record ‘Stranded In Arcadia‘, literally smashing all what has been previously done by the band, in terms of creativity and the sensations it provides to the listener. Heavier and more hypnotic than ever, this 8-track stoner masterpiece will take you compellingly into a whirl of cosmic riffage and addictive grooves: it’ll take you into the unseen and wonderful world of Arcadia.
