Comet Control were formed in 2013 around the time Toronto band Quest for Fire announced their breakup. The band includes two former members of Quest for Fire – Chad Ross, on guitar and vocals, and Andrew Moszynski, on guitar – as well as Nicole Howell, on bass, Jay Anderson of BIBLICAL, on drums, and Christopher Sandes, on keys.
The album opens with galloping drums and surf guitar motives – the signature elements of classic psychedelic rock – and the rest of this sophomore effort simply delivers some of the best that the modern day psych-revival can offer. Filtered through 2016 lens, Comet Control takes every development of psychedelia since 1967 (i.e. prog-rock, stoner-rock and even dream-pop) and produces a timeless confection of deadpan vocals, wall-of-sound guitars and motorik rhythmic drones.
“Dig Out Your Head”, “The Hive”, “Sick in Space”.
My Bloody Valentine, Swervedriver, Ride.
One of the forerunners of the current crop of psych-rock revivalists, which is really saying something!
