Norway-based psychedelic doomsters Superlynx celebrate their 10th anniversary by releasing new music, a new additional member and the return to stage. The band premiere new song/video for »Cycle« via Outlaws Of The Sun today and the song will drop on streaming platforms September 18th!
Superlynx comments about the new song and video: “We are excited to share »Cycle« as the second single from our new album which drops in only a few weeks. This is one of the heavier songs on the album and it is really based on one simple riff throughout the song but with certain variations that kind of move in a cycle.
This song is about the big things which are totally outside of human control and about accepting that they are. No matter how hard we try to plan and secure and control our realities there is always so much we have no power over such as life, death, the forces of nature, coincidences, accidents, illness etc. Life feels like a cycle between beginnings and ends, order and chaos, joy and sorrow and so on and we just have to accept what we can’t control and try to not worry so much about what might happen, and the song tries to capture that feeling.”

The new album is entitled »4 10« and it is written and played by the original trio Pia, Ole and Daniel as usual, but since the recording the band has expanded by including additional guitarist Espen Krøll. He will join the band on stage from now on for an even fuller live sound.
“Jamming has always been important to us in addition to songwriting.” Superlynx says. “This time all the music on the album was created through jamming sessions where the music that came out lead the way and turned into these songs. The entire album was recorded in the rehearsal space where we started out a decade ago, by our drummer Ole Teigen / Crowtown Recordings. The focus on 4 10 is imagination, dreams, connection and an open view. Today we further explore fuzzed out heavy psych, improvisation and the depths of dreams and surrealism.”
When Superlynx is asked about musical influences the answer is something like “the sum of all the different music we all listen to and are inspired by, be it doom, drone, psych, shoegaze, desert rock, grunge, metal, old blues, jazz, 60s/70s rock”.
The members have a lot of music in common but also different influences. It is all a part of them, and something that naturally affects their own style of playing. Superlynx follows no rules except what sounds and feels right, and lets the music lead their way.
»4 10« will be released on CD, Vinyl and Digital formats by September 29th, 2023. Preorders are up: argonautarecords.com/shop
