Heavy psychedelic rockers Desert Clouds have released their song »Speed Of Shadow« over at The Obelisk. The song is from their upcoming album »Planexit« which will be released on Mandrone Records March 25, 2022.

The band comments: “»Speed Of Shadow« – lead single of the album – shows how a nameless man realizes that the environment, the planet and any circumstance cannot be the issue until you’re part of them. He understands that running away from anything doesn’t have any effect if you don’t escape yourself first.”


Drawing inspiration from all genres and influences from the likes of Syd Barrett to Led Zeppelin to Nirvana, and Tool. Lyrically they explore the darker side of the human condition and draw on interests such as the Italian artistic movement Decadentism, along with existentialism. Opening the album is the dynamic title track »Planexit«, taking a humorous twist on Brexit delivers a theatrical and genre mixing experience. Classic, psychedelic rock styles fuse with overdriven guitars and progressive elements to create a distinctive soundscape. From the high-energy, fast-pace of »Mamarse« to the serene, atmospheric »Deceivers«, the new album delves into dystopian themes aptly explored through compelling composition.

Venture on a thrilling voyage with »Planexit«. Melodic riffs and hard hitting rhythms fuel the powerful impact of the music. Desert Clouds’ experimental sound produces colourful musicality enhanced with a heavy intensity.
