The Lucid Dream announce new album – listen to lead single ‘CHI-03’

The Carlisle psych stalwarts announce details of their fifth album.

Carlisle four-piece, The Lucid Dream, have announced details of their fifth album, titled,The Deep End.

Following their fourth album, the brilliant Actualisation which was released in 2018, The Deep End is due for release on April 2 via Holy Are You Recordings.

You can listen to lead single, CHI-03, below.

Speaking of the new single, singer/guitarist/programmer, Mark Emmerson says, “CHI-03” was the first track that I wrote for what would be the new album, and was written before Actualisation was released in the autumn 2018. It was the first track on which I used the SH-01a synth as well as a recently acquired sampler.

“As a band, we nailed it within a day of rehearsals in spring 2019, from a writer’s perspective hearing the force of the track as a 4 piece was overwhelming. Sheer Power. It was also the first track that we recorded for the new album. We have said between us recently that it is surreal that the track and samples particularly (as well as the prominent 80s hip hop influence) are based around issues that have reared their ugly head again since.”

Reminds me of early 5oo Blows from sometime around the late 80s, which is no bad thing at all! I wonder if it’s the synth (a SH-01a … not that I have any knowledge at all of such things). The DIY vid also helps. Cheers.
