Taken from new release ‘Thought and Existence’ coming May 4th.
“The Golden Fields” is the epitome of BONG’s psychedelic drone craft, immersing the audience into a sensory mirage of intense hallucinatory shapes and spectrals, slowly unfurling and expanding into a phantasmagoria of melancholic mystery. The track sonically manifests as an aura of luminosity and transcendence whilst simultaneously stirring a foreboding and solemn sentiment that we are sentient, mortal beings forever teetering on the edge of complete darkness.
Bong embrace the lengthy song and you have to be a serious drone fan to really get into this. Avoiding the obvious comparisons to Sunno))) (which is borderline impossible in this genre) there’s a fair bit of musical work at play here. The intermittent drums reminiscent of Nadja and the filthy guitar tone wandering into Acid King territory. The sublime soloing melody frames the whole thing perfectly.
