Fuzzy, mangled guitars and swirling, psychedelia? It can only be THE LOVELY EGGS

THE LOVELY EGGS are back with a second taste of ‘Eggsistentialism’ – their forthcoming album due May 17th – with a kraut-rock infused new single, ‘Memory Man.’

Charged with a hypnotic, robotic Can-like beat, ‘Memory Man’ is propelled by a fuzzy, mangled guitar tone, blending magnificently with the song’s swirling, mesmerising, psychedelia.

“I wrote the lyrics and melody to ‘Memory Man’ while driving,” explains singer, Holly Ross.

“It was a bit of a subconscious thought stream connected to what I’d been going through at the time. The original melody was slightly different to what it eventually became. It was much slower and had more of a ‘Syd Barrett’ vibe. Then one day in the studio, David (Blackwell) was playing a riff and beat he had recorded but didn’t know what to do with.

“So, we wondered what would happen if we mixed my melody and lyrics with this kind of relentless Kraut-beat and that’s how the song came about. Once we knew it would work, we knew we needed a big robot voice on there, so we put that on, sent it over to producer Dave Fridmann, and he just really liked it and that was that.”

‘Eggsistentialism’ will be released on ltd edition ‘mind green’ green 12” vinyl and CD. All orders made via the band’s website include a limited edition signed print of the album artwork, with the first 500 LP copies hand numbered and signed by the band.
