Album Review: Hypnos Soma – Hypnos Soma (Self Released)

London based psychedelic rock band, Hypnos Soma have released their self-titled new album on July 31st 2018.



Waves of hypnotising rock built on a dreamscape of grungy noise and shoegaze effects wash over you as Hypnos Soma call on the power of hippy-culture. Seven tracks of melting melodies, strung out vocals and remarkable rhythms. The likes of Cold Water are heavily embossed with the late-sixties culture of free love and peace.

Context offers up haunting highs and Bullet Brain gives devious blows before Powder Keg takes off with a bit more pace and groovy vibe. The latter of three is a messy number but the fuzzy riffing is very appealing.

Hypnos Soma is the soundtrack to a drugged-out trip. We’re talking bright and vibrant colours and visible sound waves that move in time to your body. The soft melody of Rainfall is a final reflective tune that ticks along nicely adding the occasional extra element along the way.
