Glasgow’s Helicon have been staples of the UK’s underground scene since they formed back in 2009 and from then they’ve gone on to release eight EPs and share the stage with everyone from the likes of Wooden Shjips, The Warlocks, Dead Skeletons and The Holydrug Couple.
Picking up an ever-growing reputation along the way the band are now finally set to release their long-overdue self-titled debut LP on Fuzz Club – produced by Tony Doogan at Mogwai’s Castle Of Doom Studio.
Exploring themes of love and loss, drugs and drink, religion and politics, and life and death, Helicon’s new album is a collection of sprawling and expansive Eastern-tained psych-rock.
Psychedelia has always transcended geographical limits and with this in mind, the band explain how the new record aims to explore all psychedelic ley-lines across the globe - from their home-country Scotland to the sitar-led sounds of India whilst nodding equally to both vintage and modern psychedelic motifs.
