Track Of The Day: The Lucid Dream - 'The Emptiest Place'

While they're working their second album, Carlisle-based four piece The Lucid Dream have released of a brand new 7" single. 'Moonstruck' b/w 'The Emptiest Place' via Too Pure, as part of their singles club. The Lucid Dream were formed in 2008, and after three 7" single releases ('Love In My Veins' 'Heartbreak Girl' 'Hits Me Like I'm Stoned'), the band found themselves playing support slots with A Place To Bury Strangers, Death In Vegas, Spectrum, Crocodiles, Captain Beefheart's 'The Magic Band' and The Aliens to name just a few. Their debut album, 'Songs Of Lies and Deceit', was released in August 2013. The thrillingly hallucinogenic 'Moonstruck' recalls Clinic's early work in places, driven by urgently pulsing organs and hypnotic vibes before it works itself into a climactic fury. On the awesome b-side 'The Emptiest Place', reverb drenched vocals and spacey guitars embed psych moods into spaghetti western flavours and dark rockabilly elements...
