Describe your sound in 3 words
Groovy heady psychedelic
Tell us a few things about your latest work Another Dimension. What is the main idea behind it?
Well the idea of this LP was more so an exploration in developing our sound and song writing. This album is just Stone Camillo (drums/bass/ guitar/keys/vocals/mixing/recording) Dale Wesolowski (bass/guitar/keys/vocals) while being co-written by both. This was our first attempt at creating a cohesive project using our favorite home recordings from the past 5 years.
Favourite psychedelic album of the past decade?
Stone and Dale both say its a tough question, but Quantum Leap by Dumbo Gets Mad is a timeless masterpiece that we can listen to anytime 🙂 They also had Skiptracing by Mild High Club and Innerspeaker by Tame Impala as very close honorable mentions
A spaceship from a far away galaxy visits us tomorrow and wants to learn what psychedelia is. What makes a song psychedelic?
Well psychedelic to us means letting go of any boundaries you may feel while creating music, and just making stuff from the heart and soul that has an unexplainable special type of feeling. It’s more of a feeling than anything else
Do psychedelic drugs have notable effects on music perception?
If a time machine could take you anywhere (past/future) for a day, when/where would you go?
We would love to go back in time and just pet one dinosaur , just one, please. Maybe even bring back a brachiosaurus egg for the fam.
What isn’t a crime but should be?
Spotifys pay day to us/ youtube ads/ ads in general
What is the story behind your name?
So Stone and Dale were at the apple store one day because Stone had to get his Iphone repaired. So were just hanging out checking the cool devices, and we noticed there was some loud construction going on in the store. After like 2 minutes, some cute old lady apple worker comes up to us out of nowhere and said “ Do you guys hear that, it sounds like an Ancient Spaceship in here”. Dale and Stone immediately locked eyes and realized our fate, and accepted what needed to be done. The mission was accepted and now we are forever on the hunt for enlightenment through sonic frequencies ❤
