180gm Double Vinyl

Founded in 2003, Norway's Rancho Relaxo are known for their talent to create compelling, absorbing sound spirals that seduce you from the get-go. With their seventh album, "White Light Fever", the band once more has a thrilling adventure up their sleeve. Self-describing their music as "Neo-Psychedelic Zendom", Rancho Relaxo's highly remarkable and distinctive sound paintings breathe various influences and elements, from neo-psychedelia to space rock to folk, from shoegaze to drone to alternative.

The amalgamation of whirring guitar riffs, psychedelic clouds, reverb-drenched streams, acoustic colours, drone-laden injections and crisp edges with sky-high, addictive melodies and an intense, often embracingly yearning atmosphere make up for an exciting journey that lets the listeners taste different cocktails.

From heavy psych-rock adrenalin kicks ("Dead Space") and hot'n'dirty grooving energy pills ("If You Want To") to mid-tempo jewels with a melancholically sparkling, romantic twist ("Strange Vibrations", "Stars") to noise-pop tinted ballads with a bittersweet acoustic fragrance ("Taken") and psychedelic-driven, extraterrestrial-atmospheric soundtrack trips (“White Light”).

There is a lot to discover on this passionately created, flavourful album. "White Light Fever" will be released on 180gram double vinyl, with download code.
