Early this year (March 2019), Italian shoegaze and psychedelic influenced Rev Rev Rev announced a new album and label. In addition, they released a new single to promote the announcement called ‘Catching the Blade’. Flash forward to the summer, as earlier this month (August 2019), they shared a second single from the upcoming new album “Kykeon”. This one is titled ‘One Illusion Is Very Much Like Another’.
According to the press release, veering away from the blistering psychedelic noise-rock that’s to be found on most of the album – as seen in the first single, ‘Clutching The Blade’, released back in March – ‘One Illusion…’ is instead a ritualistic shoegaze-y drone that explores repetition and texture over their usual sonic belligerence.
They aren’t wrong.
