The Norwegian Alt-Psychedelic Risers Share a Varied EP Project
By Frank Bell
Creating and releasing some of the most interesting and diverse new indie coming out of Scandinavia – Bergen-based four-piece Fucales are a unique talent that draws on influences from around the globe. Despite their formative years, ranging from 17-21, they have a sound that’s mature beyond their age, a unique and daring take on the genre. This is their new EP Deep Under.
With wild and melodic trumpets, psychedelic guitars and a explosive rhythm section, the band has won “Best New Band” in the Bergenbased showcase “Eggstock Festival”, played Bergen Showcase Vill Vill Vest, the “do it together” festival HÁTÍÐNI on Iceland, and Blå in Oslo, to mention a few.
Their musical expression ranges from the dreamy and aggressive, like Sonic Youth or My Bloody Valentine, but also touches elements from jazz and pop music.
