Kamggarn New single ‘Cranberry Kiss’ out now
Birthed from London’s thriving garage-psych scene, Kamggarn formed in the summer of 2016 as Meat Candy and have since been paying their dues for the circuits best venues and promoters.
Spotted early by independent tastemakers Dirty Melody Records they released their debut vinyl EP and have now announced their upcoming full-length. The Smashing Pumpkins meets Sonic Youth slacker grunge guitars of ‘Cranberry Kiss’ give a distorted but refrained introduction to Kamggarn’s beautifully nuanced classic songwriting. It crescendos with every corner of the track battling under walls of feedback for centre stage, buckling under the weight of powerhouse drums and an addictively catchy chorus hook.
One of the first tracks the group wrote together, it remains more relevant than ever to the band’s current sound and state of mind. We’re told it’s a song about “the feeling of constantly fighting yourself and being trapped in a cage of inexistent rules that only you created”.
The animated music video and artwork was designed by label owner and visual artist Mcbess. With a common interest in 70’s prog and modern psychedelia, Kamggarn formed at 123 studios in Peckham where Brett Shaw has also recorded the bulk of their output.
Following this they’ve already shared stages with international heavyweights such as Wand, Psychedelic Porn Crumpets, Mystery Lights, Wooden Indian Burial Ground, Mr. Airplaneman and Swedish Death Candy.
‘Cranberry Kiss’ is taken from Kamggarn’s debut album ‘Psych Aux Tropiques’ out September 2019.
Live dates: 03.08 – Essex Psych Fest
