The London, U.K.’s BLACK HELIUM are everything I like and enjoy about the psychedelic and/or shoegaze music genres.
Their new official video, “Curtains At The Mausoleum“, is a mind-melting descent into a lysergic-laced trance. Ghostly vocals accompany unhurried aural emissions that linger upon the airwaves – and it is just cool as fuck. Speaking of that much-maligned four-letter word…
BLACK HELIUM will release their debut album, ‘Primitive Fuck’, via Riot Season Records on July 20th. While I admittedly have not heard the entire album YET, I absolutely hope and pray it is all in the otherworldly vein of this alluring single and video. We are including a previously shared track here, “Do You Want To Come Out Tonight?“, to further this listening experience.
