‘Jack Of Diamonds’ by Lucid Sins | New Album, ‘Dancing in the Dark’
Exclusive track premiere of ‘Jack Of Diamonds’ by Glasgow occult psych rockers Lucid Sins, taken from the upcoming album, ‘Dancing in the Dark,’ out October 27th via Totem Cat Records.
Lucid Sins is Ruaraidh Sanachan and Andreas Johnsson, the heads who brought an explosive freeform psychedelia to Glasgow’s live scene through their first band Moon Unit. With their Totem Cat Records debut ‘Occultation’ (2015) — not to mention their stellar cover of Medusa’s ‘Black Wizard’ — the Scottish duo drew attention to their darkness-tinged brand of 70s psych and classic rock, making a storming entrance among their proto-metal peers Uncle Acid & The Deadbeats, Witchcraft or Dead Meadow. The project will soon released their upcoming album ‘Dancing in the Dark’ via Totem Cat Records.
“You stumble through the forest. Alone and far from home. All paths have returned you to this place. Lost in a world of green. Hidden in the dark. As the light fades you glimpse flickering flame and catch the scent of smoke. In a tiny clearing, shadows cast by a dying fire take human-esque forms. Leaning in for warmth, they share ten tales of hope and betrayal, magic and madness, love and death. Whispered words mingle with distant memories, and as the fire grows higher, your sense of self is scorched and burned. One-by-one now, the figures begin to dance and spin as occult psychedelic sounds drift through the trees. Caught in the maelstrom, suspended high in a swirling mesh of leaves and perception, you release your grip on space and time… On the forest floor, stirred by dawn, you try to make sense of the mist within your mind; To recall where you have been; To know who you once were. Around a glowing fire, deep in the woods, Lucid Sins are Dancing In The Dark… Will you dance with them?”
