NNC: Salem’s Bend (USA) + Psychlona (UK)February 28, 2019
***Salem’s Bend: A Los Angeles-based heavy rock trio, with musical influences that run the gamut from ’70s classic rockers to modern heavy-hitters in the desert, doom, psych and stoner rock/metal scenes. Having cut their teeth in different bands around LA for the past 5 years, they self-released their debut album on Bandcamp in the tail-end of December 2015. Salem’s Bend has been tearing up the local rock scene in Southern California since their West Coast tour in June 2016 with label-mates KIND and a short California Ripple Road Trip in December 2016 with The Rare Breed.
***Psychlona: Hailing from the city of Bradford in Yorkshire Country, England, Psychlona coalesced quickly with laid-back soundscapes, fuzz-driven grooves, and weighty yet flowing riff power they mutually loved. The ambitious and motivated foursome wasted no time writing and self-releasing their debut album while simultaneously organizing and hosting their own music festival, Idle Fest, all with the goal of taking their sound global. Psychlona floats easily between Boogie Van-era Fu and early Orange Goblin, stirred with ocassional spoonfuls of Spirit Caravan to doom things out. Of course, no matter how far they ride in any direction, Sky Valley is always just over the horizon…
