Progessive Rock Titans YES Hijacked By Aussie Psych Gang KING GIZZARD And THE LIZARD WIZARD

25 July 2021

Steve Howe (the band’s legendary guitarist): “Much of the music was written
in late 2019 with the rest in 2020. We commissioned several orchestrations to
augment and enhance the overall sound of these fresh new recordings, hoping
that our emphasis on melody, coupled with some expansive instrumental solo
breaks, keeps up the momentum for our listeners.”


A vintage Yes symphony designed like an architect designs his architectonic
vision. Sonic layers are constructed here with electrifying guitar extravaganza
and scintillating synths, creating a swirling rock eddy. A timeless sound that
influenced many in the past and still influences many today.

I swear, when the song twisted and turned with thunder and lighting effect
towards its firework finale, I thought 24/7 music-making Aussie psych gang
King Gizzard & The Lizard Wizard had hijacked this stunning stroke. Really

Here‘s why…
