Singapore Sling Psych Fuck on Limited Edition LP

In an ocean of rock music aloofness, manufactured coolness and glittered naivety, Singapore Sling are one of the few truly teenage-hearted bands that can make some serious noise and get your hips shaking like it's 1955. Their seventh album Psych Fuck is a dark and noisy exploration of rock ‘n' roll nostalgia that would make a fitting soundtrack for James Dean's death car.

The new album was originally planned to be released as Part II to their 2014 release The Tower of Foronicity. However during its inception it became more like an evil twin than a comrade, which is evident from the opening track "Dive In," a Suicide-like nightmare spiced up with horror piano riffs.

Henrik Björnsson says, "I decided to call the album Psych Fuck because it's much more ferocious and a lot more fucked up and experimental in the way I mixed it." This is evident in the bouncy go-go rhythms overlaid with dark and noisy shoegaze fuzz, to evoke a mix of teenage despair and sex-spiked fun.

Described by Pop Matters as "a soundtrack for future prequels to either Pulp Fiction or Reservoir Dogs," the Singapore Sling sound combines the shambolic rituals of The Cramps, the apocalyptic neon landscapes of Suicide and the devilish cacophonies of White Light White Heat, which can be heard in the first single "ÆJL."
