Psychedelic. Sludgy. Melodic. All words you could use to describe “Galactic Brain,” the new song from Chicago experimental metal outfit The Atlas Moth. The new song, which is streaming below exclusively through Decibel, still contains the psychedelic, sludgy dissonance of 2014’s The Old Believer, but it also contains a more upbeat, rock feel to it.
“This song is very much a call to action for anyone out there that feels like deep down there is a bigger reason that we are all here together, in this moment,” guitarist/vocalist David Kush says. “You may think that the world as it stands is chaotic and full of randomness, but I would argue if you listen closely to the silence, and accept Timothy Leary’s and Terrence McKenna’s life experience as in the realm of possibility, you will find that there is an organized, rhythmic, mathematical song that is always playing in the background. Well at least it is for me. I try to tap in to that song and “turn on” whenever possible and Galactic Brain is our version of that universal song. The message is clear. And it’s not new. Be Kind. Hurt no one. Open your EYE.”
Coma Noir will see release on February 9 via Prosthetic Records.
