MAYBERIAN SANSKÜLOTTS Light Up Our Murky World With ‘GOD TIGER NEED CHEMICAL WORKS’

26 May 2022

Band: MAYBERIAN SANSKÜLOTTS
Who: A dream-pop team that merges the rigid romanticism of ’80s new wave
bands like The Cure, the slow-burning grandiosity of Slowdive-esque shoegaze
and the dreaminess and melodic sensibilities of contemporary acts like
Beach House.

New album: GOD TIGER NEED CHEMICAL WORKS

The title of the new album was borrowed from a Vietnamese tiger balm label. Guitarist Gallusz Balogh explains: “Even though this combination of words is completely meaningless, they had a magical effect on me. I immediately told everyone in the band that it should be the title of the next album. I was transfixed by these words after that, and a few days later I wrote the demo for God Tiger in about an hour, even though it usually takes me a long time to write songs.”

Turn Up The Volume‘s impressions: Sonically this sextet float between the past and the present, between former British star-gazers The Sundays and today’s lauded romantics London Grammar.

Yes, you may dim the lights and lit some candles to create the fitting atmosphere for mellow love musings, – like ‘Wanna Stop Thinking’, ‘Back Of My Mind’, ‘Guilty’, ‘Golden Hives’ and ‘Altató Tündérkórus’ – that wander on a silver-lined cloud of smooth synths
and glistening guitar sparks and you can dance in your head to more upbeat tunes like Halogen, Eyes in The Dark and the trippy ambient instrumental Balatoni gyász.

Out-and-out this is an ear-pleasing work of cozy pop captivation
with Zita Csordás‘ fairytale voice as a lighthouse in our murky world
