Filter Premieres German Psychedelic Folk Rockers Okta Logue’s Lyric Video for ‘Mr. Busdriver”
TALES OF TRANSIT CITY’ OUT NOW VIA THE END RECORDS
MEDIA ALERT New York, NY (October 31, 2013) – Today Filter is proud to premiere German psychedelic folk rockers Okta Logue’s lyric video for ‘Mr. Busdriver’ off their new album ‘Tales Of Transit City’ available now via The End Records.
‘”Mr. Busdriver” is sure to be a track that twists and turns itself into your subconscious for the rest of the day.” – Filter
Earlier this month the band embarked on their debut US tour featuring succesful slots at the Culture Collide festival and High Road / Champion’s CMJ showcase at Bowery Ballroom.
Their new album ‘Tales Of Transit City’ pulls the best of 60s and 70s rock into something so familiar, yet you have never heard before with hints of Pink Floyd’s proggy psych atmospheres and the bluesy jamming of the Grateful Dead.
While listening one can hear a multitude of themes: Beatles quotes, Brit-Pop reminiscence, never before written Keith Richards riffs, Wilco- blows and club sounding synthesizers that meet with exalted choirs.
Though Okta Logue love the sounds of yesteryear, they casually and sexily frees themselves from the vintage-trap and retro-drawer, that beats itself with its own weapons and takes a decisive step towards pop without losing itself in cliches, pomp or kitsch. Okta Logue have recently opened for the esteemed Neil Young & Crazy Horse and Portugal. The Man overseas and have just completed their highly successful debut US tour..
