Info: It’s a monumental concept album, The Church hone in on their bespoke
sound in The Hypnogogue without retreading creative steps. The record offers
a pool of melancholy tones and psychedelic swells, transporting listeners to
another realm, guided by its striking science fiction narrative.
Steve Kilbey (bassist, vocalist and founder) explains: “The Hypnogogue is the most
prog rock thing we have ever done, we’ve never created a concept album before. It is the
most teamwork record we have ever had. Everyone in the band is so justifiably proud of
this record and everyone helped to make sure it was as good as it could be.
Personally, I think it’s in our top three records. The complexity, the way the songs relate
to each other and the level of collaboration that has gone into the record. For fans of older records, give this one a chance, it will go on rewarding you for years and years. There’s lots
of subtle references to other artists, other songs and other times”.
