Premiere: Caandides – Zero

Another depressing working week has just begun and we need for some kind of madness today here at Going Solo headquarters. Luckily some time ago we were asked to premiere the new single by French freak-poppers Caandides, a Paris-based three-piece that recently debuted with two singles called Winter XIII and Black Mass. Both of them are taken from Caandides’ debut LP whose history hails from a strange event happened in January 1958, when a UFO was sighted flying over an island off the coast of Trinidad. The imagination of the band was triggered by this event and so they decided to write/play/dream of encounters of the third kind in a tropical setting.

Today they unveil their brand new single Zero, a crazy psych-pop track that’s made up by tons of different textures and layers full of otherworldly synths, wild percussions and weird/muted vocals. It is REALLY reminiscent of early Animal Collective, which is obviously a very very good thing.

Zero is taken from Caandides‘ debut LP, due out on February 5th via Cracki Records (Los Porcos, Ménage à Trois).
