Portland, Oregon based Heavy Psych Rock band Dommengang released the first single “Society Blues” taken from their upcoming new album “Wished Eye” due out on April 21, 2023 via Thrill Jockey. Stream the track on Bandcamp:
Power trio Dommengang deliver Heavy Psych Rock on new album Wished Eye, out April 21st. The album delivers super tasty, dirty guitars, serpentine psychedelic grooves, and propulsive drumming with gleeful abandon. First single “Society Blues” builds to an exuberant explosion of crisp, blues-laden guitar lines that soar over a driving rhythm section, bringing to mind the 1970’s power of a Louis Dambra solo. The dynamic song is carried by ascendant vocals, the band stretching out at the midway point and expanding into the outer world, giving the listener a taste of their explorative live shows.
Wished Eye is the studio album of a band that, live, ignites chaotic release and otherworldly meditation. To capture this energy and freedom in the studio, the trio tracked all the songs together to tape and let experimentation run wild. Working without time constraints or limitations, they could dig deeper into their ever expanding lines, their songs expanding as the guitar explores. Dommengang’s sheer joy of making music together, delivered with skill, imagination and abandon, make Wished Eye an immersive journey without ever leaving home – what a trip it is.
Dommengang will be touring Europe this spring following the release of Wished Eye, including a performance at Desertfest London. More worldwide tour dates and festivals to be announced.
