Austrian psych-rock trio MOTHER’S CAKE release new single ‘Crystals in the Sky’ and announce new LP
CYBERFUNK! to be released 18th September
Austrian psych-rock trio MOTHER’S CAKE have released their new single ‘Crystals in the Sky‘, taken from their forthcoming LP, CYBERFUNK! released 18th September via Membran.
Watch ‘Crystals in the Sky‘ video:
‘Crystals in the Sky‘ is another intoxicating glimpse into the madcap world of MOTHER’S CAKE and follows hot on the heels of their well-received previous single, ‘Toxic Brother’.
It’s rare that a release can be as varied or as vivacious as CYBERFUNK!, an LP that combines elements of The Beatles at their most psychedelic, Pink Floyd, King Gizzard & The Lizard Wizard, even Arctic Monkeys and Wolfmother. A stunning and thrillingly infectious release that is perhaps best-described as psych-rock meets ‘Speedstoner’, full of passionate energy and intelligent design.
The career of MOTHER’S CAKE to date has seen them play hundreds of concerts from Manchester to Mumbai to Melbourne, including shows with Wolfmother, Iggy & The Stooges, Omar Rodriguez-López, Alice In Chains and Limp Bizkit. They have also released three successful studio albums plus a ‘Live at Pompeii’-style live set recorded on the iconic ski jump in Bergisel, Austria in 2018.
Notable prior press support comes from the likes of LouderSound, Rolling Stone, RedBull.com; the band’s previous record No Rhyme No Reason charted internationally, including in the Top 40 Austrian Charts. Beyond that, MOTHER’S CAKE’s single ‘Black Roses‘ spent two weeks on the Spotify UK Top 50 Viral Chart.
