There may be plenty of Alice in Wonderland-inspired tracks, but you’ve never heard anything like Down In Splendour’s take with “Alice Underground”. The UK-based international collective of musicians merged elements of Post Punk and Psych Rock together in a pioneeringly eccentric soundscape which will stick to your synapses like superglue.
If you could imagine what Queens of the Stone Age Would sound like with a more carnivalesque and kaleidoscopic tone, you’d get a good idea at the psychedelic alchemy contained in this uniquely beguiling single. You’re hooked in right from the prelude in Alice Underground, with each progression, you receive the artfully immersive aural payoff for surrendering your conscious to the inventive track.
You can check out Alice Underground which was released on November 29th for yourselves by heading over to SoundCloud now.
