Dark Bells' 'In Head' may be psychedelic rock, but it isn't tethered to some imagined inner sense of transcendence brought on by little tabs of corrosion. It's tethered to its tangible by-products, able to inspire an organic rush of frisson with a tight snare drive.

The only thing chemical about it is the bleed of the guitars, a metallic shriek of elastic coils. The track is a thrilling, disciplined dose of psychedelia, a portrait of the outer mind bred from within it, whichever way you want to get lost, Dark Bells are here to flow beside you.

'In Head' is out on April 24th via RIP Records.
