Backseat Mafia say some words about Lay Llamas new single 'Altair'
Sicilian Lay Llamas have today revealed a new video for track ‘Altair’, the third to be released from forthcoming album ‘Thuban’.
‘Thuban’ is scheduled to be released on 15th June and the album features contributions from Goat as well as The Pop Group’s Mark Stewart and Clinic. The 8-track album is the brainchild of Nicola Giunta, and involved as many of twelve different musicians yet with Nicola writing lyrics, singing, producing, mixing and recording at his home, whilst utilising new instruments from marimba to sax to kalimba to pilot this craft to dimensions unknown.
‘Altair’ is a psych-tropicalia excursion featuring lead vocals by Goatshee, one of the enigmatic singers from label mates Goat. The track centres around an addictive percussive groove and heavily fuzzed guitars that create a psychedelic pop mantra in the vein of the Brazilian band Os Mutantes.
