Ed Wynne: Front man from Ozric Tentacles with new amazing song!

Ed Wynne – Seen The Sun

Ed Wynne celebrate the summer solstice with new video Seen The Sun. Ozric Tentacles front man Ed Wynne celebrates the Summer Sosltice, 39-years after the iconic Ozrics were formed during the solstice at Stonehenge Free Festival in 1983, with the release of a video for new song Seen The Sun.

Ed Wynne, front man of the influential British band Ozric Tentacles has announced Tumbling Through The Floativerse, a brand new studio album made in collaboration with Gre Vanderloo of Gracerooms. The album will arrive via Kscope on 15th July 2022 on limited edition blue vinyl, along with standard black LP, CD and digital.

With Ed Wynne having been a friend and admirer of Gre Vanderloo and his project Gracerooms for some time, the pair began working together in early 2020 at Wynne’s Blue Bubble Studio in Fife, Scotland. The album features guest appearances from Ozric Tentacles’ synth player Silas Neptune and Gracerooms bassist Paul Klaessen, with Ed Wynne himself on engineering duties and mastering from Adam Goodlet, along with typically psychedelic album artwork by Valerie Fangman.

The creative vision of multi-instrumentalist Ed Wynne, Ozric Tentacles are regarded as one of the most influential bands to emerge from the UK’s festival scene, formed during the solstice at Stonehenge Free Festival 1983 going on to become psychedelic staples at Glastonbury and other festivals. Since their inception the Ozric Tentacles have woven psychedelic audio-tapestries that capture the almost dangerous musical diversity of the free festival scene, blending acid rock with dub, reggae, ethnic world music and electronic, jazzy experimentation.  The Ozrics’ uniquely trippy soundscapes connect fans of progressive rock, psychedelia and dance music culture.

Ed Wynne on Tumbling Through The Floativerse:

«I’ve always enjoyed the synth orientated musical worlds he creates with his project ‘Gracerooms. Shortly before lockdown 2020, whilst making the early stages of the recent Ozrics album Space for the Earth, we decided to try and make some tunes together. Gre came over from Holland where he lives, to the Blue Bubble Studio here in Fife and we started recording pretty much straight away. We ended up with about six definite starting points, which then developed and unfolded into a harmonic realm we referred to as The Floativerse… A place where you might escape gravity for a moment».

Gre Vanderloo on Tumbling Through The Floativerse:

«It all began in 2018 when Ed asked me to play synths at a Nodens Ictus gig, which, as a heavy Ozric fan made me  as proud as a peacock! That’s where the idea of making an album together was formed. Ed visited me the year after and we had lots of fun in the Graceroom Studiorecording some things here and there not knowing that some of that was already tumblin thru…. Then I visited Ed a while after and we recorded lots of v-drums and synths and unknown layers of silly madness in the Blue Bubble Studio in Scotland. We had so much fun while creating this magical floativerse, and I think some will feel that. I think it’s not an Ozric album and not a Gracerooms album, and yet somehow both. Basically it’s Tumbling Thru The Floativerse and it has Erpman and waterfalls! ».

Tumbling Through The Floativerse is released via Kscope on 15th July 2022

Om Ulf Backstrøm (6841 Artikler)
Mitt hovedfokus er musikk som er basert på progressiv tenking. Jeg er på ingen måte ensporet innen musikksmak, i likhet med intensjonen bak prog. Sjangerbegrepet er egentlig temmelig uinteressant annet enn til å gi en pekepinn om hva slags musikk det er snakk om i en anmeldelse. Jeg søker god musikk for å utfordre meg som lytter. God musikk til å trigge mine musikalske smaksløker, og til å sette i gang mine refleksjoner. Da er sjansen stor for at jeg utvikler meg og lærer, noe som bør være drivstoff for et hvert menneske. Fordi det å lære og utvikle seg er noe som tilfører livet en nødvendig porsjon "krydder". Slikt krydderet finner man blant annet i musikk. Ikke overraskende mener jeg at progressiv musikk har den fineste "smaken". På den annen side kan musikk med eller uten progressive elementer være godt nok til hverdags. Til fest derimot holder bare rendyrket prog! Må jo også få med at jeg rimelig kritisk, og jeg mener at det lages mye prog som er i beste fall uinteressant, og faktisk mye som er pinlig dårlig. Heldigvis oppveies dette av ekstremt dyktige aktører som for eksempel: Flower Kings, Mostly Autumn og White Willow, for å nevne noen tilfeldig valgte.
