NEW ARTIST OF THE DAY: Hypnotized
Infectious psychedelia beamed straight from another world (AKA Brighton)
SUBBA-CULTCHA.COM SAYS: “An eerie trip through the ether, Hypnotized’s ‘Telesto’ EP showcases their evocatively skewed take on psych. Thriving on weird noise and exotic instrumentation, this Brighton trio certainly know their way around a hook, uncanny melodies lodged firmly in the front of a listener’s mind. It’s a little bit shoegaze, a little bit melted pop and a whole lot weird, live shows accompanied by some appropriately kaleidoscopic visual effects. If your mind leans towards the mind-altering, this lot should definitely be on your radar – take a look at the video for ‘Ghost Walk’ below, and keep ‘em peeled for further coverage.”
Esben & The Witch’s Daniel Copeman has signed Brighton three-piece Hypnotized to his label Love Thy Neighbour (Abi Wade, Us Baby Bear Bones & A Lily). Named after a Spacemen 3 track , Hypnotized is made up of Robbie Wood, Robin White & Paul Whelan. The trio released a 5-track EP called ‘Telesto’ on March 24th on CD and digital download.
