FÖLLAKZOID began ten years ago as a trance experience between childhood friends Diego, Juan Pablo, and Domingo from Santiago, Chile. Heavily informed by the heritage of the ancient music of the Andes, the band has learned to integrate this influence with contemporary sounds of their times, creating a rich yet minimal atmosphere. On the books, they are a psych-pop band, experienced live, they are a travelers of the mind, guiding spirits and earthly energies to the forefront creating musical enlightenment everywhere they play.
In a remote and exotic distant point in the vast cosmos called Oakland, California, five separate manifestations of collective consciousness take in ambient energy, Vietnamese sandwiches and C2H6O (that's the empirical formula for booze) and resound this sacred slipstream through synths, keys, drums and strings. LUMERIANS will not ask you to dance, but will rather make you submit to your own subconscious (or conscious) desire to. Don't try to fight it. This is real. This is happening. Garage-psych at it's best.
DEAD FEATHERS cascade back to the Bottle for a checkup on your psychedelic trance. That powerful, female lead vocals blended with a gritty atmospheric bite - DEAD FEATHERS means fucking business. Not as soft as PURSON, but not as roaring as ROYAL THUNDER, the quintent asserts themselves in front of any crowd -- ascend yourself into the blanketing incense smoke and celestial grooves that is DEAD FEATHERS.
