THE PRESOLAR SANDS
”THE BIG NOISE”
RELEASE APRIL 12
The Presolar Sands creates music from a broad spectrum of genres that comes together in a world where melodic and psychedelic elements resonate with crushed explosive noise and dark witch symbolism. Since the debut in 2015, The Presolar Sands have released a 7” and an EP, they’ve supported international acts such as Kikagaku Moyo and White Hills and played shows around Scandinavia and Europe including festivals like Sweden Rock Festival (2016), Malmö Psych Fest (2015), Copenhagen Psych Fest (2016), Malmöfestivalen (2016) and Where's The Music? (2017).
Their debut album THE BIG NOISE is out April 12 via Lazy Octopus Records. It draws inspiration from the Witch Hunts of the 17th century, and the period of mass hysteria in Sweden, called The Big Noise (Det Stora Oväsendet), where hundreds of women were assassinated for ”practicing witchcraft”.
THE BIG NOISE has heart-beat drums, vibrating guitars, reverberating piano, dark lyrics and the witchy voices of Jessica (sings lead vocals on “Exposure”, “Witches' Hill”, “State Of Loneliness”, “Panic Disorder”, “Skinchanger” and “We Own You”) and Charlotta (sings lead vocals on “Det Stora Oväsendet” and “Dig You Out”).
It was recorded at Studio Cobra in Stockholm in November 2016 together with producer/engineer Martin Ehrencrona and mastered by Hans Olsson Brookes at Svenska Grammofonstudion in Gothenburg.
