“Hailing from Bergen, Norway, Electric Eye play droned out psych-rock inspired by the blues, India and the ever more expanding universe. The four piece released their long awaited debut LP ‘Pick-up, Lift-off, Space, Time’ in April 2013. The album received positive mentions in Norwegian media, which have spread to international blogs and radio stations. The album was a co-released in the US and the UK by Norway’s Klangkollektivet and London based Fuzz Club Records. Throughout the fall of 2013, Electric Eye toured Scandinavia and Europe and were given rave reviews for their performance at Iceland Airwaves in Reykjavik. The group continued on to headline the Oslo Psych Fest and were featured on the compilation LP called ‘The reverb conspiracy vol.2′ released by Fuzz Club and Austin psych fest”.
Austin, you’re in for a real audio and visual treat my friends, ‘Electric Eye’ will encompass the kaleidoscopic shades of the Texan sun and induce a fitting musical experience. The Norwegian Four-piece won’t be alone, there’s a small army of Scandinavian bands gracing the many venues that is SXSW this year. Drawing influences from Pink Floyd, Spacemen 3, Neu!, Prog-Rock and heavy Psychedelia, ‘Electric Eye’ play Space-Rock symphonies that are primarily designed to blow your mind into a thousand tiny pieces, each track gives an enthusiastically structured build-up then Bang! ; all hell breaks loose with a barrage of quelled reverb and fuzzy bass – If George Harrison had heard the opening chords on the track ‘Tangerine’, I’m sure he’d have probably thought twice about picking up a sitar in the late Sixties.
“Highly recommended to fans of The Black Angels, Secret Machines and Spacemen 3. Electric Eye will play Eurosonic Noorderslag on January 16th. Be sure to catch the Norweigan psych rockers as they make their debut SXSW appearence in Austin this March”
