Stream: Perish – Terror Swimming

While Cork has no shortage of hazed-out, psych-leaning rock bands at the minute, the new-fangled – and potentially quite brilliant – Perish have instantly grabbed our ear here at TTA.

Led by Australian musician and producer Ciaran Corcoran, the band – which started as a recording of Corcoran’s – will release a four-track EP, Inertia, on download and cassette via Cork’s Sunshine Cult Records on February 4. Lead single ‘Terror Swimming’ hints at something special in the making.

A hazed-out trip bursting with submerged, starry-eyed guitar shapes and a wondrous wall of reverb-soaked noise, the single conjures Flying Saucer Attack and MBV via Bardo Pond, Seefeel and New Order. That, we can assure you, is no bad thing.
