Manchester veterans THE SPEED OF SOUND have a new video which they’re premiering with Vive Le Rock!
A slice of sprightly psych clocking in at under two minutes, ‘Opium Eyes’ is the second single to be lifted from the band’s new album Museum Of Tomorrow, their fifth, which we described as “unique and otherworldly”.
“‘Opium Eyes’ reflects the glazed, distanced stare of someone evading the past, the present and the future,” say the band. “Disengagement is the safest retreat for the alienated; from the poppy fields of Panta to Thomas de Quincy and on to Wild Palms and Dune, the escape to an artificial reality overtakes the ‘real’ world in importance.”
Released through Californian label Big Stir, Museum Of Tomorrow is available here.
