New Song Alert: Elohim by Psychic Rites
Formed of equal parts creation and desolation, Psychic Rites’ brand of dark, sugary dance pop pierces through the alt-country air and aimlessly hip rolling hills of the Pacific Northwest with an unmatched sense of urgency and frenetic freshness. With a musical focus on the joy and pain of exploration and experimentation, it only seems natural that this ensemble harbors a deep-seated DIY mentality extending beyond the sound waves. Their hands on approach involves every aspect of their manufactured Neon Doom Disco. The outcome is a seamless, infectious blend of romanticized intellectual independence and the electro-sex sounds of bands like The Knife, Goblin, and Giorgio Moroder. Psychic Rites is currently finishing their debut album.
