The Berlin psych-rockers THE SOMNAMBULIST already published two albums since 2009 and are going to stoke 2016 up.
A harbinger of the new LP, which contains unreleased songs since the foundation of the band, is the single Transverberate coming out on Slowing Records. The trio are known for its energetic sound and sweeping live shows.
Transverberate are supported by strong emotional vocals that play around psychedelic guitar chords whipped up by imperious drums.
The song slowly builds to a wall of sound which may be hard to resist not only for the fans of the genre.
The B-Side Ultramarine Blues reveals the musical diversity and expertise of the band that moves between indie, experimental and jazz.

Marco Bianciardi - vocals, guitar, sampler
Thomas Kolarczyk - electric bass
