Psyence Short Info

Stoke-on-Trent psych-extraordinaires Psyence are a band so authentically different from its genre that it can only have outgrown it.

Shirking the kraut-rock and dark side of post-psych, while transcending the eternal cheesiness of the free-love Daisy age, Psyence are a band so differentiated from anyone else that it can only be described as stepping into new undiscovered frontiers. Blurring the lines of 60's Americana garage rock and flirting with modern-day psychedelia such as Pond and Temples, Psyence is an intense chemical reaction of face-melting riffs, spacious vocals and groove-based rhythms that have been locked away up north to slowly mature away from the 'style over substance' London psych scene.

Already being lauded by the likes of The NME, Q Magazine, Clash, The Quietus and The Guardian, 2013 saw Psyence perform at the Liverpool International Festival of Psychedelia and be hailed as "the best live band" he'd seen in 10 years by The Charlatan's Martin Blunt.

2014 saw a riotous capacity show at Liverpool Sound City to coincide with the 'third-eye cleansing' elixir being unleashed with the release of new single 'Chemicals For Breakfast'; a five-minute wall of sound that takes more unexpected turns than a David Lynch film, 'Chemicals for Breakfast' sounds like a vintage undiscovered psych track if the scenes' forefathers had no technical limitations.
