After causing seismic shifts in the underground earlier this year with their debut album Neither Virtue Nor Anger, Sonic Jesus are back with a limited edition 7” featuring a brand new track, and remix by Sonic Boom aka Pete Kember from Spacemen 3 and Spectrum.
On Side A the remix of “Locomotive” maintains the track’s beautiful abstract vocals which evoke some kind of religious ritual or perhaps a lonely lament. The song is then propelled into the heavens as the band crashes in and Sonic Boom’s psychedelic treatment takes effect. The B side, “Never In My Mind”, starts off like a call to arms full of violence and energy, and continues its rampage pace like an adrenaline shot to the heart. The marching snare drum is overlaid with fuzz-heavy guitars and dark distorted vocals to produce a sound that is distinctly Sonic Jesus
