Psychedelic Porn Crumpets Return With Blazing New Single

As their first move for 2020, Psychedelic Porn Crumpets have made another strong impact with the release of their new single, Mr. Prism. Bounding along with energy from the onset, Mr. Prism is relentless in its approach – a fiery reminder of the type of band Psychedelic Porn Crumpets have grown into over the last few years on the road.

Since the release of the band’s third studio album And Now For The Whatchamacallit, the Perth group spent the second half of 2019 on tour through the UK and Europe, before returning to Australia for a summer festival run. Taking advantage of loosening restrictions in WA, Psychedelic Porn Crumpets are using the opportunity to get back to live performing, introducing their new chapter with a run of headline shows this September.

‘Mr. Prism’, full of chaotic builds and irresistible rhythms as it winds through its second half, is wild in its arrangement. The bulk of the songwriting took place at songwriter Jack McEwan’s home in WA, with drums being laid down at Perth’s Tone City Studios, before landing with Michael Jelinek and Brian Lucey. For McEwan, the song was born out of the feverish haze only illness and a crazy tour schedule can bring. “After our last tour of Europe I had a plethora of reasons to see a doctor. First, he thought I had tonsillitis, so prescribed me penicillin, which didn’t help at all. I did Falls Festival over New Year’s and barely got through – turns out I had pneumonia. I was pushing through on all sorts of meds until someone offered me the HMS Hunter.S alternative and I realised no matter how sick I’d ever be, I could never turn one down. Mr. Prism (my sickly fun-fuelled fiend of an alter-ego) was born.” Jack McEwan, Psychedelic Porn Crumpets
