Strange Days with This Other Kingdom - An Interview

Telescopic é o novo trabalho dos irlandeses insanos e freaks do This Other Kingdom.

Um mix de The Doors e Black Angels, fazendo mantras psych em forma de adoração e celebração. No meio disso tudo a uma alta dose carregada de escuridão, indícios de pós punk? Sim.

O TOK é para ser ouvido alto, de forma estridente e preferencialmente se você estiver alto também, o resultado será melhor percebido.
