New album: Pollo Del Mar || Speed Of Dark

You wonder what the Speed Of Dark is? That’s what you hear when Californian surf rock legends Pollo Del Mar (est. 1993) return after a long hiatus. Songwriter Ferenc Dobronyi (guitar), Jono Jones (guitar), Jeff Turner (bass) and Jeremy Rexford (drums) recorded ten instrumental masterpieces with psych, prog and spaghetti western influences. The new record is versatile and exciting, danceable and entertaining, cinematic and as colorful as the cover art. Standout tunes include Surfin’ With Keith (with a Rolling Stones groove), Pose of Awareness (flowing through six different movements) and a cover of The Pyronauts’ Sifaka (back in the day a live favourite, with added shouting).

Speed Of Dark is out now digitally and on vinyl LP through MuSick Recordings.
