Wet Satin share new single 'Golden Prawn'. Debut album out August 12 on Fuzz Club Records. Announced for Desert Daze Festival (Sept 30)
Californian electronic duo Wet Satin (comprised of former Lumerians members Jason Miller and Marc Melzer) are today releasing new single ‘Golden Prawn’, the latest to be lifted from their incoming self-titled debut album out August 12th on Fuzz Club. Arriving following recent singles ‘Colored Tongues’ and ‘WitchKraft Singles’, you can stream ‘Golden Prawn’ below and pre-order the LP here.
Miller says of the new track: “We recorded this last summer in a basement in Grass Valley, California. It captures the feeling of a surreal summer, reframed as a sort of psychedelic Cumbia science fiction odyssey that takes place at the bottom of a swimming pool. We were watching lots of experimental films and listening to synth-driven Colombian music, which we found a comforting alternative to an increasingly bizarre news cycle and fractured shared reality.”
Taking a step away from brain-frying space-rock/psych wig-outs harnessed in their 15 years playing together in Lumerians (who broke up in 2020), Wet Satin deals in what the duo call Kosmische Tropicale: “An expression of reverence and enthusiasm growing from a long-time shared obsession with lost Cosmic Disco, Cumbia, Afrofunk and Library Music records. We wanted to make something fun. Not too serious, but not frivolous either. Something that paid respect to its influences by adding a square to the quilt rather than trying to make a replica."
