It is definitely no coincidence that Napalm Records, home of bands like Monster Magnet, God Is An Astronaut, My Sleeping Karma and Desert Rock legend John Garcia, has already been keeping an eye on Suns of Thyme & has already announced the worldwide signing of this remarkable band.
It’s hard to imagine that something called Krautgaze could grow up in any other place than Berlin. In its glittering darkness, the city is a perfect breeding ground for a band like Suns of Thyme!The five-piece crashes together space rock, shoegaze, psych and Velvet Underground on its sophomore albumCascades – out on May 27th 2016 via Napalm Records.
Today the quintet unveils their first lyric-video.
Singer Tobias Feltes about ‘Do or die’:
‘My intellect was trying to understand or conceptualize something that is unintelligible. To go beyond, the intellect might bring the answers we’ve been looking for. After recognizing the unknown, misconceptions and the accompanying fear can vanish.’
Bassist Jens Rosenkranz about the Video: ‘In the video we wanted to show the struggles of a young writer to overcome her fear of failure. She manages when she realizes that it is a matter of do or die.’
This ode to free thought is brimming with melancholy and a nonchalant greatness that will comfortably settle in behind your eyes – Suns of Thyme casts off genre clichés with a grin and an artfully nostalgic twist.
