If you’re partial to the idea of a never-ending, cosmic journey through the galaxy, then maybe, just maybe, you’ll stumble upon the fuzzy stoner rock sound of Icelandic trio Volcanova. Make sure to pack your flying campervan to the brim, because they are taking their music to the next level, with the release of a new single titled Super Duper Van.
Meshing together rock with the anthemic tone of metal, Super Duper Van is a blast of vintage Iron Maiden combined with a twist of the more progressive music of The Vintage Caravan. It’s easy to get lost in the experimental, heavy drumbeat that is laced with a bass-laden groove. Not to mention the intertwining of the trippy guitar riffs and layers of vocal harmonies that bring a different tone to the stoner rock genre. It’s innovative and psychedelic in all the right places.
Super Duper Van is a homage to the fabulous ’70s heavy rock sound, with Volcanova encompassing all the right dynamics of flashy riffs, a catchy chorus and buckets of passion. It’ll be impossible to pass on their forthcoming album, Radical Waves, scheduled for release on August 21st. I, for one, can’t wait.
