Swirling San Jose based psych aficionados ‘The Gentle Cycle’ have unleashed the lead single & its brilliant ‘Acid Drenched’ accompanying video entitled ‘Follow Light’ from their forthcoming full length album, due for release over the next few months. The band are made up of Derek See – guitar/vocals, Maxwell Borkenhagen – guitar/mellotron, Todd Flanagan – bass and Craig Heitkam – drums and they have a unique talent of creating infectiously addictive psychedelic soundscapes by utilising vintage gear and bygone recording methods to birth a swirling, grooving style of rock ‘n’ roll that’s both timeless and relevant. The overall outcome is mesmerising! The accompanying video was directed by & presented in a film by London based musician/ visual artist Gil De Ray.
