Seattle-based doom blues foursome SUN CROW recently signed to Ripple Music for the worldwide release of their dark and hypnotic debut album ‘Quest for Oblivion’, due out July 2nd. Today they present a shiver-inducing second track with “Black It Out”.
Rain-soaked doom blues, moss-covered stoner rock, grey sky heavy psych, whatever they call it, SUN CROW calls the old spirits of high volume heavy rock into close quarters and paints the ceiling and walls with magnets, wood, and glass. Clocking in at a generous seventy minutes in a Pacific Northwest haze of tar-thick riffs and grooves wrapped in epic vocals, their acclaimed debut album ‘Quest For Oblivion’ truly is a gloomy yet engrossing sonic journey, a dark psyche experience wrapped in the foursome’s loud and bleak existential doom rock. The album will be officially released on CD, limited edition vinyl and digital on July 2nd through Ripple Music.
About “Black It Out”, the band says: “Black it Out follows the opener Collapse, where our travelers had escaped from some place they were before. Maybe they believe they are escaping to someplace new that seems better. ‘Black it Out’ finds them waking up after a long journey and not being sure whether their memories of where they came from are real. Can they trust their memories have returned after erasing them? Are the recorded images and sounds they experience the same as what they had made for themselves in life? Do they really want to know?” Don’t forget to check out first single “Collapse” at this location.
