San Francisco Post-punk Trio Cellar Doors Premiere Their Latest Video For “Frost” & Play Levitation Fest May 1st
Hailing from San Francisco by way of Southern California, Cellar Doors are thriving within the California psych scene. Leading constituents of what is being called the third wave of psychedelic sound; they have been coaxed out of their thriving underground scene for support slots via invitation from the likes of Black Rebel Motorcycle Club, Roky Erickson, Toy, Allah-Las, Mystic Braves and Alex Maas (Black Angels), among others.
Their much anticipated debut album is one of the most hotly tipped in recent times around the Bay Area, dripping with pure power psych melody overlaid onto undulating walls of sound. Powerful, brooding and danceable at the same time, it is at once timeless and cutting edge.
Lead single “Frost” sounds like “helicopter blades cutting through thick black molasses,” tearing out of the speakers as if it were a forgotten classic on the jukebox of some far- away planet, conveying the simple electricity of attraction while staring at one’s own life in a hall of warped mirrors. Released in a limited edition on white vinyl by Spiritual Pajamas Records the single is accompanied by a video from English director Nathan Seabrook.
“Depeche Mode and Joy Division robbed the biggest bank in London, and in the safe they found Cellar Doors. I love music you can rob a bank to and this does that for me.” ~ Alex Maas (The Black Angels)
