ON TRIAL "The Danish Psych band pushes to new heights of sonic craftsmanship. A potent mixture of heavy fuzz guitar, harmonies and psychedelic keyboard textures that evoke the spirit of classic US '60's acid psych. Fronted by the best vocalist since Roky Erickson this band are truly awesome! On Trial with more than 10 years and 4 studio albums, numerous EPs and obscure singles and live-recordings, have been described as Scandinavia’s best kept secret since Rumplestiltskin. Sounding like a cross between Love and The Sound Track Of Our Lives the band blend an emotional west coast flavoured sound with powerful acid guitar and melodic sensibilities. Intricate arrangements and sweeping acid psych that’s both achingly ragged and beautifully realised. This band grows on you with every listen just like a classic album should."
