Part love song, part cautionary tale, ‘Gigantopithecus’ is a stomping psychedelic-inspired stoner rock track about discovering the mythical sasquatch, played in the video by James Rhodes.
Produced, mixed and mastered by drummer Billy Joe Mattack, commenting on the track front man Connor Childs said: “I’ve been interested in myths, urban legends and cryptids since I was a kid, hence the band name ‘Mothman, The Man’. Because of this, I felt it fitting to write more songs influenced by them. This song, in particular, is about the act of ‘squatching’, which is Bigfoot enthusiast lingo for sasquatch hunting. It follows the main character’s hunt and eventual encounter with the mythical beast. I wrote the main riff initially and titled the recording on my phone ‘Bigfoot Type Beat’ and the development of the song spiralled from there.”
Psyched-out fuzzy garage stoner rock emerging from the depths of the UK’s deep south, Mothman, The Man are an odd-squad collective of sonic sorcerers and aural warlocks trained in the ancient art of rock and/or roll. The band consists of Connor Childs on rhythm guitar and vocals, Charlie Ward on bass, Lewis Gadsby on keys and synth, Billy Mattock on drums and backing vocals, and Finley Kelly on lead guitar.
Hot on the heels of the release of their 2023 debut album 1000 Eyes on Krautpop Records (owned by Paul Greco, former bassist with anarcho pop-punkers Chumbawamba) the band return from the depths of the murky swamps to bring you their forthcoming second LP Where’s Your Head?
An eclectic outfit that take influence from a wide source of musical material, Mothman mix in the experimental mindset of bands like Mr Bungle, the raw production style of Neutral Milk Hotel and Ty Segall, the neo-psychedelia of King Gizzard & The Lizard Wizard and Thee Oh Sees, as well as the doom and stoner sensibilities of bands like Wand, Electric Wizard and Sleep.
The band will be revealing further live dates and album details over the coming months.
