Dark Essence Records have kicked off 2019 with the release of a new single taken from “New Moon, the upcoming full-length album from the Norwegian doom/psych trio SUPERLYNX.
The single, for the track “Indian Summer”, can be streamed or downloaded from the following http://phonofile.link/indian-summer
SUPERLYNX’s Pia Isaksen, who also did the artwork for “Indian Summer”, and for the album itself, has this to say about the track:
Indian summer is one of the more feel good songs on the album where we focussed on bringing out the positive aspect about surviving hard times. It is a mental gathering of strength and a celebration of finally being able to let go and move on. The title Indian Summer represents something that comes late but which is good. The scream in the last part of the song took all I had, and it really felt like an act of banishing lingering trauma.
SUPERLYNX was originally formed as a duo by drummer Ole Teigen and bassist/vocalist Pia Isaksen in 2013. However, after meeting with guitarist Daniel Bakken, coupled with his performance during rehearsals, SUPERLYNX became a fully fledged trio.
“New Moon” will be SUPERLYNX’s second full-length album and was recorded by the band themselves, with a little help from Ole Jørgen Moe, who recorded their debut album. Mixed by the band’s long-time sound engineer Amund Tømmerbakke, and mastered by Fridtjof Lindeman at Strype Audio, tracklisting for “New Moon” is as follows:
03. Becoming the Sea
04. New Moon
05. Indian Summer
06. These Children that come at us with Knives
08. Cold Black Sea
09. The Groove
10. The Thickest Night
