Album Premiere: This Other Kingdom – Rêveur

DSC_9034 (2)21

Hands down one of the country’s most engaging neo-psychedelic propositions, Dublin threesome Del Kerton, Declan Dunne and Git Sweeney AKA This Other Kingdom have long struck a keen balance between hazed-out psych finesse and straight-up rock n’ roll glory.

Having released their debut EP Sunlight back in 2013, and their well-received debut album Telescopic two years later, the trio are back with ‘Rêveur’, an eleven-track triumph filtering the band’s kaleidoscopic range of influences, past and present. From the lysergic strut of opener ‘Common Colours Common Sounds’ to closer ‘This is War’, the reverberations of everyone from Jefferson Airplane and Black Lips to The Doors and The Black Angels are imprint on the release, bolstered by the band’s own brand of prismatic garage rock.

Have an exclusive first listen to the album below.

This Other Kingdom launch the album at Dublin’s Workman’s Club tomorrow night (Saturday, April 22) from 8pm. Admission is €8 and support comes from ARitualSea.
