Following their recent Australian tour, rock experimentalists Tropical Fuck Storm are back with the hypnotically raucous new single The Golden Ratio, lifted from a forthcoming 12” titled Submersive Behaviour, set for release in Febaruary 2023. 

A rough and rugged genre-defying cut, The Golden Ratio sees TFS doing what only they can, fusing the cacophonous and melodic in an addictive four minute aural package.

The Golden Ratio exists when a line is divided into two parts and the longer part (a) divided by, the smaller part (b) is equal to the sum of (a) + (b) divided by (a), which both equal 1.61803398875. Our new song has been crafted to these exact specifications for the purposes of musical excellence, " frontman Gareth Liddiard explains.  

As well as a few cuts from their recent Moonburn EP, the Submersive Behaviour 12’ will also feature a 19-minute cover of Jimi Hendrix’s 1983 (A Merman I Should Turn To Be) that’s sure to be a wild ride. Gareth says  "Our version of 1983 A Merman I Shall Turn To Be is an attempt to right the recent wrongs perpetrated against Hendrix's classic "Angel" by some idiot from One Direction doing a karaoke-style "tribute" for Jimi's 80th birthday.” 

Bit excited about that! In the meantime, give The Golden Ratio a spin.
