Danish heavy psych seven-piece (yup, seven of ’em) Red Lama said hello last fall with a video for their track “The World is Yours” (posted here), heralding the arrival of their debut album, Dreams are Free. The physical incarnation of record is available now to preorder through a crowdfunding campaign, while the digital version is due out April 15, and as a precursor to that, they’ve unveiled the opening track “Inca” as a digital single and video, which you can see below.
“Inca” is no less molten than was “The World is Yours,” the band specializing in immersive, fluid, percussive psychedelia. Among other elements at play, “Inca” tosses out the title line of the album and features a driving, almost space rock-style push, but never loses sight of the atmospheric impression it’s trying to make. It’s chill even when it’s heavy, in other words. You can hear it for yourself.
To the PR wire:
Red Lama post new single and reveal details of their forthcoming debut album “Dreams Are Free”
With the release of their second single Inca, Red Lama offers another glimpse into what can be expected from their forthcoming debut album Dreams are Free. Once again the dutch artist Iris Deppe has produced to video which expresses the same peculiar collage style that was seen on the band’s first video for the single The World is Yours.
Until now, Red Lama is best known from live appearances in venues in Copenhagen, Danish festivals, including a couple of appearances at Copenhagen Psych Fest. Indeed, the foundation for Dreams Are Free is the vivid sensation of being a band that plays together and make music together. The album is made collectively through numerous jams in the band’s rehearsal room, and during summer trips to more scenic parts of Denmark.
“To release a record with seven songs , that we are proud of, is surely a milestone for each one of us. We are very honored to finally have all things in place and cant wait to show the finished work. The process has been fantastic and for us the end of a long and beautiful chapter in the Red Lama life. We love making music , so the album has only created even more appetite for new unexplored dream worlds . ” Says Johannes Linnet leadsinger of Red Lama.
Dreams are Free will be released digitally April 15 through the Danish/Norwegian record label, All Good Clean Records. The vinyl release follows a couple of weeks later and can be pre-ordered here: https://www.booomerang.dk/projects/red-lama-dreams-are-free-lp/
