New Single: Plaster Mask

Coming Friday May 5th, Plaster Mask is the new EP by Julie's Haircut

Balancing control and fury has been Julie’s Haircut’s main stylistic trait for years - perhaps never more so efficiently than in their new single “Plaster Mask”, a track which distinctly shows the ability of the five Italian psychrockers to set a sonically-filled landscape with a few key factors - an hypnotic rhythm, an alien vocal, some synthesized hooks, and a central section climaxing in a blistering stash of noises and drones. Like a trip back and forth blending the Apollonian and the Dionisyan, “Plaster Mask” is an amazing example of the band’s approach to contemporary psychedelia.

Two exceptional guest remixes complete the release, both coming from highly respected labelmates at Rocket Recordings: one by J. Zunz (Lorelle Meets The Obsolete) and one by Mike Bourne (Teeth Of The Sea).

The band also has a video to go with the new song, directed by Luca Giovanardi with Dave Petersen and additional graphics by John O'Carroll, featuring the brave kendo warriors Valentina Barbieri and Marco Tabellini of the Shodan Dojo Reggio Emilia.

The cover photo was shot by Andrea Scarfone, graphic layout by Chris Reeder.

La California by director Cinzia Bomoll is in the italian cinemas now. Our friendship with Cinzia goes back a long time, she directed a videoclip for us so long ago it is painful to think about it. For the soundtrack of her new film she picked - among others - our old song Lost in a Riot, from the 2003 EP The Power Of Psychic Revenge
