Psychedelic Porn Crumpets Announce Fourth Studio Album

Psychedelic Porn Crumpets continue to assert their status as one of Australia’s hardest working bands – pandemic be damned – in announcing the release of their new album, SHYGA! The Sunlight Mound, set for release February 2021. For the Perth group, creativity and production hasn’t stopped in 2020. Despite much of this year’s tour plans being put on pause, Psychedelic Porn Crumpets have used their time off road to continue preparing themselves for the release of their fourth studio release, and an eventual blistering return to stages around the world with a heavy-hitter of an album primed for the live space.

From SHYGA! The Sunlight Mound, Psychedelic Porn Crumpets share a new effervescent taste of music in their new single, Tally-Ho. As you may come to expect from the band at this point, Tally-Ho revels in creative hedonism, written to engage the senses and make your ears tingle with excitement.

As frontman and songwriter Jack McEwan explains, the genesis of a song like Tally-Ho can be found in the backyard at 3am of any house party, outside your local waiting for an Uber at the end of Friday night sesh. Those late night attempts to solve the world problems, fuelled by cooked inhibitions and over-thought mind ramblings.

“‘Tally-Ho reenacts the classic fable of late night gonzo talks on copious amounts of chemical enthusiasm. I wanted the lyrics to feel sporadic and impulsive, kinda like the conversation you’d have with a mate after a night out; where you just want to debate something, but most of your synapses are already fried, so you’re both blurting out gibberish, but really giving it a good go at sounding formal. A sober third party might assume you’re both morons but between the constant waves of inebriated dialogue you feel like you’ve activated God mode and are only a few online classes away from becoming a favoured politician that will solve all the world’s problems.” Jack McEwan, Psychedelic Porn Crumpets

Psychedelic Porn Crumpets have already given fans an early taste of the forthcoming SHYGA! era, with Mr. Prism in August. Earning acclaim upon its release, Mr. Prism signalled something special was building out on the West Coast; Psychedelic Porn Crumpets were gearing up for something big. The creation of SHYGA! The Sunlight Mound, especially off the back of 2019’s huge LP And Now For The Whatchamacallit, came together in a different environment for McEwan and the results speak to the band’s evolution and McEwan’s evolution as a songwriter.

“For the first time in a long time I was home without any tours booked, no work, no deadlines and I felt free to create. My writing process became ritualistic; every morning starting with a small walk to the local bottle shop at 11am and writing whatever flowed, allowing myself to design in all styles without boundaries, and not trying to theme the album early on. I haven’t had the luxury of writing this way since the first record, which I spent almost a year working on. It felt like I was myself again, creating without opinion or constraints. I was gliding through weeks with a day seeming to pass.” Jack McEwan, Psychedelic Porn Crumpets
