Mermaids return to the sacred black wax after a five year break. It appears to have been time well spent, as their sound has matured into a rhythmic, expansive feast. Coming on like a psychotropic, hallucinatory distillation of their anything-goes More Ritual show on Netil Radio, this action-packed EP is an evocative, cosmic journey that defies classification. There are sprinkles of deep house, disco and bass with a tropical, outward looking feel. Opening track Crystal Eyes patiently broods it’s way up the energy ladder, winding around birdsong, field recordings, flamenco guitars and ear-worm grade drum patterns that grow into a propulsive, bass-driven finale. Find The Light merges a driving a low-end with plaintive keys and sparkling percussion; high-energy dreamer music for weary-legged dancers. The B-side kicks the mission off into a voodoo state with Raising The Altar; a mysterious and intrepid slo-mo juggernaut that carries the listener through a shamanic odyssey with enough sway to topple a pyramid. Gilded Key closes the set with an uplifting, strings and percussion drenched groover that will leave you grinning widely, still drenched in the steam-heat of the ritual. With early support from The Revenge, Rune Lindbaek, Andrew Thomson, Esa, Auntie Flo, Jaye Ward & more.
