O Emperor release their new single Electric Tongues / Erman Gou on 19th November, with a launch gig in Whelan’s on November 23rd.
Although relatively quiet on the home-front O Emperor have had a busy 2012 which saw them releasing “HITHER THITHER” in Europe on independent German label K and F Records and supporting the release with European tour dates.
2012 also saw them spending many moon cycles in their home studio/fire hazard recording material for their new album to be released next Spring. Their new material promises to be quite a departure from their previous efforts, both of these new songs reflect the band’s developing taste and diversification:
“Electric Tongues” musically and lyrically conveys the sensory overload of a surreal dream – being strongly influenced by pioneering Krautrock acts from the early ’70s whom the band have collectively grown to love.
“Erman Gou” evokes a more thoughtful, introspective mood. Set against a stripped down live band feel with some stream-of-consciousness guitar and synth work, it reflects the easy, unhurried approach that the band has favoured in recent times.
