VIDEO PREMIERE: Weird Omen “A Place I Want To Know”

As posted in LiveEyeTV

Weird Omen is a garage rock trio from France and on February 1st they will release their infectious 7″ single  “A Place I Want To Know/Girls Are Dancing On The Highway” via Dirty Water Records. The band’s unique sound is bolstered by baritone sax player Fred Rollercoaster, and it features Sister Ray on guitar and Remi Pablo on drums. Look for the 7″ to come out in anticipation of the band’s upcoming full-length Surrealistic Feast, due out in mid-March via the UK label.

With Fred Rollercoaster’s baritone sax effectively providing the band’s low end, he leads the way on “A Place I Want To Know” cooking the track with a wild-sounding heat. When Sister Ray joins the commotion on guitar, sunny hues of West Coast acid rock blare thru with warped and reverberating tones as Remi Pablo drives the beat like a speed freak on a broken drum kit. It’s a white knuckle ride as the trio gallops along with a slippery rhythmic sense while spastic blasts of strychnine seem to propel them headlong into nervous outbursts of revved-up double time.

Below, you can peep Weird Omen’s new video for the track. Repurposing what looks like an animated sci-fi adventure from the 70’s, outer space looks like the kind of place you’ll probably “want to know.”
