Pale Fires are four London based musicians who came together in 2010, united by their love of psych rock. The band have played venues as diverse as The Cavern Club, 93 Feet East, The Purple Turtle and Scala amongst many others, cultivating a reputation for their explosive live shows, which feature visuals, body paint and a giant Chinese gong.
Pale Fires release their new record ‘Mammoth’ on September 29th 2014 as a name-your-price download via their website.. A limited number of physical copies are also being released, each of which is a unique piece from an original hand-painted mosaic by London artist and fashion designer Peanut Samuels.
Mammoth sees the band adopt an all-analogue straight to tape approach, which they feel best captures the energy and power behind their live sound. The title ‘Mammoth’ was chosen because “It’s strong, fun, fuzzy and earthy – everything the record is.” Pale Fires describe the thirty-minute ‘Mammoth’ as establishing their musical footprint by combining whimsical lyrics with strong fuzzed out riffs and powerful, intricate rhythms. The all-analogue approach was motivated by the band’s love of seventies records, particularly the music of Hendrix, CAN and Pink Floyd.
Pale Fires will launch the new EP on September 27th 2014 at the Shrubbery Studios, Bury St Edmunds, where both ‘Mammoth’ and their last EP, April 2014s ‘Louring Skies’ were recorded. Both records will be performed live in their entirety and a UK tour will follow, showcasing the band’s colourful and carnivalesque live shows.
