Illumination to a house beat, The Egg’s “The Sun is Flat” will touch your brain.
This track’s a journey to the center of the mind. It probes at consciousness with bristling pads and synths – traipsing the neocortex on paths of psychedelia.
Skipping stones. On electric water. Dipping toes. Leave the shore.
You’re up on the waves. You’re down in the foam.
Skin to skeleton. Your bones wash ashore. A message to the rest. Come and swim.
Resplendent light-waves spark our eardrums in “The Sun is Flat’s” intro, then cool into a shimmering, rumbling groove. Oh yes, you can step to this.
Touches of old-school funk and disco combine over a house beat, all doused in a heavy coat of warbling snaps and pops. Shakers come in as the beat shambles into a shuffle. Each portion of the song shifts smoothly to the next.
Otherworldly effects surround us throughout the song. Reverberating keys stab at the edges of the mix and a cascade of digital notes careens from hissing heights to mid-lows. Stay afloat.
“The Sun is Flat” is everything psychedelia can be, with a modern touch. If you’re primed for an interstellar journey, let the Egg guide you on the airwaves.
