Swedish psych rockers Nepal Death drop official music video for their new single »Sister Nirvana«, out today via Kali Psyche Records.
“Jenny is a shy and isolated hippie girl, who resides in a world reminiscent of 1972, yearning to break free as a dancer. Yet, her attempts have been met with consistent failure, forcing her to escape into her imaginative realm. Last night, an enigmatic flyer was slipped under her door, beckoning her to the “Nepal Death dance audition at Club Abrakadabra.” Hesitant at first, Jenny summons her courage, dons her favorite dress, and sets off to the club. Tonight, her dreams may unfurl into reality – or spiral into a nightmarish abyss.”

Death, decadence, and disco balls! Nepal Death’s »Sister Nirvana« – 1972 psych rock B-movie hippie dance horror!
Brace yourself for an electrifying journey as the hippie psych rock collective Nepal Death launch their new single and video! A young hippie girl, fueled by her dreams of becoming a dancer, takes a chance and ventures to a dance audition, only to find herself ensnared by a dangerous death cult, with her dance moves as her only defence.
The music video pays homage to B-movie horror stories from the seventies, featuring captivating dance sequences and a gripping storyline. Directed by filmmaker Emil Dorbell and penned by Nepal Death’s frontman, Anders Hallberg, the video was shot on location in an old strippers’ joint featuring real actors and a horde of evil groovy cultists. The song is a pulsating empowering psychedelic rock anthem aiming for cosmic dancefloors in all dimensions. Like a marriage of the vibes from The Rolling Stones’ »Gimme Shelter«, and the aura of up tempo The Soundtrack Of Our Lives. The track encapsulates the essence of the early trippy seventies, featuring psych guitars, backward sitars, infectious basslines and a rhythmic drum groove… All interwoven with massive organ and magical flute melodies.
Nepal Death is like a transcendent 1972 VW bus voyage along The Hippie Trail. This Swedish musical collective is painting a vibrant auditory tapestry reminiscent of the era of free love, all set against the mysterious backdrop of death goddess Kali Ma. Their music beckons listeners to contemplate the metamorphosis (or end) that await them beyond the ultimate destination of Kathmandu.
