On my search for good psychedelic rock, I recently stumbled upon the debut album from Polymoon. Sharing space on Svart Records with Kairon; IRSE!, the label continue to show they have the ability to lift up Finnish psych bands and give them the attention they deserve.
Hailing from Tampere, Finland, the quintet showcases what the city has to offer when it comes to psychedelic rock, blending heavy psych and spacey soundscapes with progressive elements. The band shows load of talent on their first effort, which is largely an instrumental album, though there are still room for voices that blends nicely in with the rest of the music.
Oranssi Pazuzu-vocalist Juho Vanhanen, who co-produced the album, has this to say about the band: “Polymoon are the new open-minded young mages of the explosive psychedelia rock scene that Finland and Tampere area has been producing over the recent years. The rich and colorful sound of the band delivers really fresh and beautiful ideas to the table. And they are being served with such a passion that it makes you think of the days when music was standing out for a revolution. And not in that nostalgic manner, but in a way that makes you experience something important is happening right here and now.”
