London via Oxford 9-piece psych collective Mandrake Handshake return with their sophomore EP ‘The Triple Point of Water’ .
Indicative of the self-honed style they dub ‘Flowerkraut’, this EP unleashes a hedonistic brain-frying feast of krautrock, art-pop and psychedelia, spiced with enigmatic grooves and fearless improvisations. Riff-shredding odes to anime ninjas tussle seamlessly with psych-pop romances on the complexities of human love. Suspenseful french-noir influences explode into triumphant motorik propulsions about toppling-fascism and aggressive, counter-pressing football. Incorporating the expansive range of influences the group have absorbed in the last eighteen months, as well as their new-found penchant for spur-of-the-moment jams – both in the writing process and in their live set – ‘The Triple Point of Water’ provides the Mandrake’s most definitive statement on record yet.
