Premiere: Space Carbonara unleash a pysch-rock stomper with Eat Your Brains For Lunch
They've got a huge Aussie tour coming up in 2018.
There's nothing we love more here than a bit of spacey psychedelic rock with some hairs on its chest, and Space Carbonara's latest odyssey, Eat Your Brains For Lunch, has it in spades: "I was just going for something really heavy. I wanted to get this real disgusting, heavy feeling out of me and into some sort of song," says the band's frontman. And after one rinse through we can comfortably say he's achieved all that and more.
It's taken from their upcoming album release, dropping early next year and to be followed by a big run of shows around the country. Soak in the fuzzed-out fury of Eat Your Brains For Lunch below, and get to know 'em a little better while you do:
Tell us about yourselves?
We’re four boyos, we play music together and we’re good friends too.
What kinda tunes we talkin’?
Psychedelic rock in a broad sense, but I don’t want to get pigeon-holed as another phaser flarin’, acid poppin’ psych band. Our newest record's much heavier than The Space Tape and more progressive. We wanted this record to have a lot of energy and as a result it was the first
time we recorded live together.
For the most part, I’ll write an album's worth of terribly recorded demos and send them through to the band. We’ll end up playing them together and changing bits and pieces of the song, adding in new bits, and then we’ll record them together live in the one room. I think
having the live energy of a band in a record is terribly important!
Can you tell us about your new single, Eat Your Brains For Lunch?
I wrote this song a bit over a year ago, I was just going for something really heavy. I wanted to get this real disgusting, heavy feeling out of me and into some sort of song. I think the demo was done in a couple of hours but sat around as an instrumental for ages until Sean came up with a melody and lyrics. Sean’s got a way with gruesome imagery in his writing and it suited the song perfectly. We tracked it live at A Sharp Studios late last year.
Any shows coming up?
We’re playing with ORB at Snake Pit (The Small Ballroom) on the 10th of November. Soy, Lachlan X Morris and Fungus will be there too. Plus on the 16th of November we’re playing at The Lansdowne with Bullshirt, Good Pash, Bleeding Knees Club DJS + Good Sh*t Djs! Come
out to one and say hey!
What’s the rest of the year have in store?
We’ll be playing a few more local shows and gearing up for the release of our new album. Release date and pre-orders aren’t far away! We’ll be heading out on tour early next year, so keep your eyes peeled for that:
Where can we hear more of your music?
Spotify is the easiest way! You’ll find it on most if not all streaming services, but you can also head to our BandCamp page too.
