“Electricide” Frankie and the Witch Fingers
Frankie and the Witch Fingers are back with their new single “Electricide.” The track appears as the A-side on a new 7″ backed by the brand new “Chalice” — purchase the 7″ via Greenway Records / The Reverberation Appreciation Society. The band is currently finishing their US tour which will finish off with an appearance at Levitation before they embark on a headline tour of Australia.
This year, the Los Angeles psych-rockers take their impossibly intense live show on the road once again, which included an earthshaking two-night stand in New York City, as well as shows in key markets across the rest of the country. The group also performed extensively in Europe this year, including two direct support slots for Ty Segall.
Following their last album, Monsters Eating People Eating Monsters…, Frankie and the Witch Fingers snapped back into focus with the tar-pit grease-slick of “Cookin’,” a single that found them scratching through the rubble of rock n’ roll. With a new tour on the horizon, the band follows that single up with “Electricide,” a double side of singe that sees them chewing on iron-plated riffs at a breakneck pace. Fueled by speed, smoke, and an elemental electricity, “Electricide” continues to embrace the street-level heft that crept in with “Cookin’.” They drop into the single already pushing the venom and volume to its limits, crushing the accelerator to the floorboards. Then, just before the three-minute mark, the band detonates the amps for maximum damage, hitting a heaviness that’s only been hinted at on record, evoking their live shows.
The flip finds them cooling off, but only slightly, with a bit of desert twang butting heads with oxygenated synths. “Chalice” runs its fingers through the listeners’ lymph nodes with a neon-hued intoxication that’s just as enticing as the red-line rip on the a-side.
