Mysteries have shared a new track ‘Authenticity Machine’ from the forthcoming record. The band’s LP ‘New Age Music Is Here’ is set for release on Oct 27th via Felte.
This elusive three-piece have garnered a variety of attention since releasing their first ever tracks online, with comparisons being made all the way from Wild Beasts to Depeche Mode. Their latest, ‘Authenticity Machine’ is a glorious slice of industrial pop, offering a little insight into the diversity of their forthcoming debut record.
Mysteries is just as it implies. A few months ago the felte label received an anonymous demo accompanied by a photo of 3 figures, faces covered like some sort of futuristic druids.
There’s a sense that the band would prefer to keep your focus on the music and not who they are, where they come from or what you might perceive them to be before hearing a single note. If you need mug shots and preamble to capture your intrigue, then this is not for you. The album’s title, New Age Music is Here, could even be interpreted as a sarcastic shot at the new listening habits dictated by the constant noise all around us, but is more likely a simple invitation to engage with the music on its own terms, in its own universe.
Almost like a psych-rock, cyborg, 50’s doo-wop Alice Coltrane if you will. Is it truly new age?
