Cork based experimental kraut/psych/alternative collective ‘The Grey Merchant’ have returned with a stunning new single entitled ‘The Last Transmission’ following on from their highly addictive debut single ‘Spotless (The Protecting Veil)’. ‘The Grey Merchant’ is the collaborative recording project of Enda O’Flaherty (Neon Atlas) and a collection of friends and fellow musicians. Their sound gravitates towards a mixture of stoner rock & modern day experimental psych & kraut rock with a moody undertone that is steeped in glorious reverberation. ‘The last Transmission’ is penned in for release on February 23rd with the promise of more releases throughout 2017.
‘The Last Transmission’ is absolutely massive in scope! Instrumentally immense, it glides through layer after layer of blistering reverberation, rattling on explosive percussion, soaring synth swells and impressive vocalisations all the while being whipped into a sonic frenzy by intricate guitar progressions and brilliant executed production. A step up from their previous release, ‘The Last Transmission’ only whets the appetite for a hell of a lot more from the band.
