Bike – Their Shamanic Majesties' Third Request

Self released – 2018
Rock, Psych, Gaze, Indie, Brasil, Tropical
Rated: ***

Brasilian rock outfit Bike already released two albums before their newest adventure called Their Shamanic Majesties’ Third Request. Back in 2015 they released 1943 and last year Em Busca Da Viagem Eterna came out. Their third album continues their slow psychedelic stroll through the Brasilian landscape, but even more tranquil and subdued. It’s a dreamy, shoegaze approach to the psychedelic realm and it sounds wonderfully sunny and distinctly faraway. As if you are sauntering through some garden, butterflies fluttering around you, flowers blooming as you pass and you notice nothing cause your head is in the clouds. Which is not only because of the echoing vocals or the soaring use of synths and little bursts of energy. It's also the damn lovely use of different forms of percussion and violin. It all adds to the majestic colorful landscape. Which leads to the conclusion that Bike is there when you need them, when you need to escape form this gloomy world, and want to experience all the colors existence has to offer. Yes, the kool-aid might be laced with something, so drink up, and tune in!
