Australia’s King Gizzard & the Lizard Wizard are a band that will seemingly never take time off. The prolific group always appears to have songs to release and never really slow down on a timeline that only they’re aware of. After releasing two albums simultaneously and then dropping two more almost immediately after those, they actually have a new song out. Along with a colorful video, “O.N.E.” is a more expansive sound from the already expanding psych band.
The song opens with delicate bells and an easy going tone. The falsetto vocals sit just a hair above the sounds, taking you into the rabbit hole before keys and drums get the song started. Balancing between Eastern tones and a more rhythmic sound, the vocals are airy yet engaging. The song has a real live and in the moment feel, yet it also streams along into a universe that’s far beyond our world.The video features cut outs of the band performing in an animated way with a real comic strip feel. The cuts of guitar that come in keep things trippy like you’ve come to expect as well.
The video is viewable above. The song is streamable on all streaming sites. The song is also available from all digital outlets via ATO Records. King Gizzard will be on tour starting June 02 at Primavera Sound in Barcelona, SP until October 24 at The Anthem in Washington. DC. Their tour schedule is accessible here.
