‘The Serpent’ by Kadabra | New Album, ‘Umbra’
Exclusive video premiere of ‘The Serpent’ by Kadabra, taken from the upcoming album, ‘Umbra,’ out October 6th via Heavy Psych Sounds.
The band formed during the dark days of 2020 and were quickly signed by Heavy Psych Sounds, who released ‘Ultra’ in the Fall of 2021 and established the band’s penchant for delivering crushing doom riffs and haunting vocals accentuated by bursts of psychedelic flair and swampy Americana swagger. And while the chemistry of long-time friends Garrett Zanol (guitar/vocals), Ian Nelson (bass) and Chase Howard (drums) was apparent upon listening to their debut, their bond was further strengthened by relentlessly touring the western United States and completing a month-long tour of Europe.
The trio almost immediately began looking forward, road-testing and crystalizing the songs that would comprise their follow-up, which found the band reuniting with ‘Ultra’ producer Dawson Scholz. The result is ‘Umbra’: a singular statement that is more focused and cohesive than its predecessor, while managing to capture the immersive, free-flowing experience of their live show.
The song ‘The Serpent’ details the internal battle of temptation the continually rears it’s head. The Witch refers to somewhat of a paralysis figure the constantly holds me back from progression. The Witch is described as being defeated by the serpent aka myself. – Garrett Zanol
‘Umbra’ is set to release on October 6 via Heavy Psych Sounds Records.
