The Sun Or The Moon have recently released the debut album Cosmic. An album with their distinctive psychedelic space rock with fair amount of powerful complex bass riffs. In addition there are spooky organ, plant of weird sound effects and jagged guitar. All in all a very fascinating and exciting music.
The Sun Or The Moon is a powerfully creative new psychedelic krautrock space lounge group currently emerging in Germany. Inspired by Can, Kraftwerk, early Pink Floyd, and Radiohead, the band has developed an expansive, brilliant, non-mainstream sound that dives deeply into the psyches of eclectic and intelligent listeners.
The Sun or the Moon was formed in the German Rhine-Main area in late summer 2019 by four adventurous and creative musicians. They have come together to realize their sound ideas inspired by 70s Kraut and Psychedelic Rock. Their debut album, which was released in September 2021 as a double vinyl LP on Tonzonen Records.
The four musicians Frank Incense (vocals, bass, baritone guitar, electric sitar, synthesizers), George Nowak (guitar, theremin, green flute), Susanne Baum (piano and keyboards), and Niclas Ciriacy (drums and percussion) describe their sound as psychedelic space lounge music. Over an electronic foundation of repetitive machine beats and sound carpets created with modular synthesizers, the band develops hypnotic and yet danceable tracks. Since improvisation is a key element in The Sun Or The Moon, no two concerts of the quartet will be alike.
Everything between monotonous kraut, relaxed psychedelic ambient and overflowing acid rock is possible.
