International Brotherhood of Evil with The Sun´s Evil Twin - An Interview

Engrossando o caldo da psicodelia moderna, onde o flower power de outrora já não é definitivamente o mote dessa galera, os freaks franceses do The Sun´s Evil Twin ateiam mais querosene no amargo gosto da psilocibina sonora dos dias atuais.

Os caras pra quem não conhece, não são novos, pelo contrário, só com o The Sun´s Evil Twin, o currículo contempla mais de dez EPs, isso desde 2015, prolíficos eles? Imagina.... os caras tem no DNA a fritação por excelência.

O The Sun´s Evil Twin, vai de VU a BJM, de Spacemen 3 a Olivia Tremor Control, de 13th Floor Elevators a qualquer coisa ácida e ardida, os caras vão seguindo o caminho da chapação sonora, sem se preocupar com modismos ou rótulos.

Peace, Love and PSYCH!!
