The Berlin psych-rockers THE SOMNAMBULIST already published two albums since 2009 and are going to stoke 2016 up.
A harbinger of the new LP, which contains unreleased songs since the foundation of the band, is the single Transverberate coming out on Slowing Records. The trio are known for its energetic sound and sweeping live shows.
Transverberate are supported by strong emotional vocals that play around psychedelic guitar chords whipped up by imperious drums.
The song slowly builds to a wall of sound which may be hard to resist not only for the fans of the genre.
The B-Side Ultramarine Blues reveals the musical diversity and expertise of the band that moves between indie, experimental and jazz.

Berlin-based THE SOMNAMBULIST gathered around Italian expat Marco Bianciardi in 2009, currently joining creative forces with Thomas Kolarczyk on electric and double bass and Valentin Schuster on drums. Since then, the band has released two LPs – “Moda Borderline” (2010) and “Sophia Verloren” (2012) – and is now introducing its next stroke of genius: “Quantum Porn”. ... more

Track Name: Transverberate
Gather the worlds going round around you:
it gets you wrong.
Spin round and out this crowd that wraps you:
I guess you won't.
Easy is when it's up to you
to renegue on a touch by your side.
Easy is when it's overdue
and everything has lost all its prime.
Everything's slowin',
you have to get through it
if you really wanna know
how you can dig it better than I... this song you have to wait,
so just look around you,
there could be your new lover.
Give him your number.
Give her your mind.

Transverberate, transmute,
transcend your prowler.

Everything's glowin', no need to get real.
My devilry has come to life.
It took it too far so I need to draw near,
day and night going up the line.
Let's fade away, it's gonna be easy,
let's fade away.
Let's fade away and don't take your ease,
let's fade away.

Everybody's waiting,
everybody took a lie in:
don't you really wanna know
how you can dig it better than I?!

Happy is your lover no more:
I will pick in your pants
till it's stuck in your mind.
