Since 2008 these sonic alchemists have been creating whacked out soundscapes and songs that appear to have been born from another universe, all from the confines of their sonic bunker.
The direction of their new album out June 2016 expands on the previous 2 lo-fi long-players, which both sold out on word of mouth alone, and have been consistently featured and raved about in top 10 lists of psychedelic blogs over the previous 2 years consecutively.
Over the years the band have performed at Austin Psych Fest 2011 and 2013, Milhoes De Festa and regularly toured Europe and UK.
In April 2014 they melted the minds of an over-capacity packed-out room at the legendary Roadburn Festival in Tilburg, Netherlands, following Walter Roadburn’s ‘Album of The Day’ feature in February for The Second Bardo–
‘Fuzz-laden psych-pop style from the school of bands like Spacemen 3 and the Jesus & Mary Chain. The rhythm section and vocals lock into a monotonous churning, grinding juggernaut chug- raw blown-out distorto guitar licks that slice over the top that’ll rip your face clean off.’
C°DK have been rapidly gaining the attention of fans of fuzz and weirdness worldwide, playing in and around Europe, with accolades often coming from the unexpected.
Experimental techno DJ and Golden Pudel resident Helena Hauff singled out ‘Swamp Heron’ as ‘The track I wish I’d signed to my label’ in a recent Guardian (UK) newspaper feature.
