Glasgow’s occult rockers Lucid Sins are back with a new single ‘Take Me With You’,ahead of the release of their third album ‘Dancing In the dark’, which drops on October 27th via Totem Cat Records.
Of the track, which features Dunbarrow frontman Espem Anderson on vocals, the band say “In a smoky tavern in a remote village, a wide-eyed youth serves a flagon of ale to the mysterious traveller who has settled by the fireplace. Youthful curiosity takes hold and a conversation begins…“
As is there want, there’s a 70s psych / bluesroc,about Take MeWith You, with this shuffle underneath that drags you along with it. Skillful guitars and a heavy dose of organ aretha order of the day. But it’s these melodies, soaked as they are in Zeppelin/ Purple-isms that really make this track worth your while.

From the moment Glasgow’s own 70s rock masters LUCID SINS catch your ear, you know you are in for a long-haul adventure: driven by their own wizardry and prodigious mastery of all instruments, the duo of Ruaraidh Sanachan and Andreas Johnsson bewitches you from the get-go. While their 2021 sophomore album “Cursed” presented an intoxicating and unwaveringly prog-oriented brew of proto-rock that sat firmly between Blue Öyster Cult and The Doors, their third album flips a brand new page of their sonic grimoire. A collaborative effort of interconnected souls, their new album “Dancing In The Dark” summons the talents of various guest musicians to form a fluid and melody-driven story where occult rock meets folk and proto-doom in a hypnotic swirl of riffs and keys carried by Jonsson’s compelling poetry. Firmly rooted in the 60s and 70s sound, LUCID SINS manages to uplift spirits while dragging you once again in the occult, meeting the boundary-free creativity of their contemporaries Witchcraft, Uncle Acid & the Deadbeats to the more seamless lightheartedness of Fairport Convention. ► Watch Lucid Sins latest video for “Jack of Diamonds“
