Every raindrop has a thunderous sound – says Chinese psychedelic group Fishy Tale, whose debut EP will take hold of your psyche.
A Fishy Tale (有话), out of Guangzhou don’t so much shed their indie shoegaze roots as subvert them, dragging them into a neo-psychedelic world – one that spans elements of alt rock, folk, krautrock, world music, and more.
While bookended by tracks of supple tranquility, the meat of the band’s debut EP, “话音刚落 As the Words Drop”, produced by Shen Zhi (of Railway Suicide Train and YePeng) who also jumps behind the drums and synths for some tracks, crackles with a malignant energy, one that takes hold of your psyche.
As the band states, ‘every raindrop has a thunderous sound,’ – prepare to get soaked.
