Solar Plexus, the forthcoming new full-length from Iberian stoner rock trio, GREEN DESERT WATER, will see release via Small Stone Records later this month.
In advance of its official unveiling, today The Obelisk is pleased to debut the band’s video for “The Deepest Sea.” Writes the esteemed online publication of Solar Plexus overall, “If your ears don’t automatically perk up on hearing the phrases ‘classic-style heavy rockers’ and ‘on Small Stone Records’ in the same sentence, well, to put it mildly they should. Thus, we find Spanish classic-style heavy rockers GREEN DESERT WATER making their debut on Small Stone Records with their second album overall, Solar Plexus. Quick to make an impression and earn immediate points with the opener and longest track ‘Open Your Wings,’ the band trio channels earliest AC/DC on the swinging heavy blues of ‘Souls Of The Woodland,’ and offers a fluid dose of fuzz in ‘Chaman,’ demonstrating a propensity both for hooks and for adding modern flair to the core heavy ’70s influence. The shuffle that emerges near the midsection of ‘Chaman,’ for example, or the tambourine-laced jam in the penultimate ‘Mother Moon.’ These are well-established methods, but as Small Stone has endeavored in recent years to demonstrate, a balance can surely be struck between the classic and the modern. GREEN DESERT WATER do this exceptionally well.”
Adds the band of the kaleidoscopic video clip, “What do you hold on to when the deepest sea extends below your feet?”
