Band: HEAVY SALAD (Manchester, UK)
Who: Formed in 2018, bonding over a joint interest in psychedelic horror films,
with Panos Cosmatos’ cult classic ‘Mandy‘ being a particular favourite, Heavy Salad
loved the idea of being in a band like a psychedelic cult, albeit a cult with no rules.
Back in 2020 the Manchester team released their
noteworthy debut LP Cult Casual. Since then they
recorded/released several singles.
And here’s another one, titled TEMPORARY VISIONARY.
Info: “Temporary Visionary is the sound of spring awakening beneath your feet.
A psychedelic, springtime slacker pop anthem that welcomes the promise of longer evenings to come… but not without some caution. The lyrical melancholy of the song weaves a truthful tale of life on the edge of catastrophe and asks the listener to look beyond the boundaries of their own personal world and consider how we all affect the environment we live in. We are all temporarily on this cosmic ride through space but we
all have an opportunity to be visionary!”
TUTV: Expect a lazy, easy-going and catchy pop tune you can sing along, hum along or whistle along. Temporary Visionary is also a wake-up call for humankind. We need to take care of our messed up planet, of nature and of each other. Heavy Salad combine a great taste for feel-good and dream-away melodies with a sharp eye on today’s not-so-great reality. We need more of that in music.
