French psych band announce Alien LP and share the first single
After being lucky enough to catch their formidable live show three times last year (at The Windmill and Shacklewell Arms here in London, and at Astral Elevator's Psych Weekender in Manchester) we knew that we had to get French three-piece Servo to join the fold here at Fuzz Club – and that they have! The Rouen-based outfit deals in the kind of dark, psychedelic noise-rock that storms with ease between gloomy, hypnotic moments and bouts of powerful, unrelenting noise and we’re super excited to be releasing their second album ‘Alien’. Due for release May 1st, you can check check out the first single 'I' below.
Servo’s sound finds a home between heavy, motorik psych-rock and gothic post-punk; forlorn, jangling guitars and deep, austere vocals breaking down into piercing blasts of feedback and distortion. ‘I’, the first taste of the new record, sets a cold, mechanical techno beat to reverberating guitars and hypnotic, chanting vocals, the tension building until things break down into a visceral wall of noise. Servo say the song is “about a guy who has lost control over himself and the world he lives in. He finds himself walking across unreal and chaotic worlds searching for answers."
Comprised of Arthur Pierre (guitar/vocals), Louis Hebert (bass/vocals) and Hugo Magontier (drums/vocals), Servo have spent the last few years bringing their intense live-show – an assault of trance-inducing noise and blinding flashes of light – to growing audiences around mainland Europe and the UK. Servo's second album ‘Alien’ is out May 1st and is available to pre-order on vinyl here.
