Brazilian space rockers Spiral Guru unveil their new single »The Fantastic Hollow Man«
Brazilian space rockers Spiral Guru unveil their new single »The Fantastic Hollow Man«, which is available now on all major streaming platforms.
The band comments: “We consider »The Fantastic Hollow Man« a synthesis of our musical trajectory, as it connects the band’s origin with its current moment. Also, music is also an affirmation of our political placements.
The creation of »The Fantastic Hollow Man« coincides with the creation of Spiral Guru itself in 2013, and in recent years, the band’s sound has been constructed on fluctuation between the genres stoner rock, space rock and heavy psych… who were somehow already present in »Fantastic«.
For those who already follow our work, we try to bring science fiction elements to decode the present and think nearby futures… We believe that this lyrics, composed at the beginning of the band, relate even more to important world and national events, which have conferred on the her other contours, meanings and strength. Hence the importance of launching it now! Enjoy!”

Spiral Guru is a Brazilian band formed in 2013, playing anything that they feel like… Space rock, heavy psych, doom metal. They actually don’t mind much about labeling their songs, as they prefer to be free to try different sonorities. The band’s lyrics depict their visions of a lot of things, mostly using science fiction as a backdrop.
“We enjoy this song a lot and we’ve always wanted to re-record it with Andrea’s vocals, our current drummer, Alexandre, and at the studio where »Void« was produced. Besides that, it represents well our thoughts on the disgusting Brazilian president elected in 2018, years after we wrote the song.” they adds.
