The Grand Social & U:Mack team up to bring you Ouzo Bazooka, a fascinating Middle Eastern Psych Rock band, into Dublin for their debut Irish show.
The band’s latest release, titled Songs From 1001 Nights, boasts 5 masterfully crafted tracks that draw inspiration from vintage Middle Eastern psychedelia and groove surf rock sounds of the 60s and 70s.
Songs From 1001 Nights transports listeners from the sweltering banks of the Nile, through Tel Aviv's bustling city streets, down to a California beach, and back around to the spice scented alleys of Istanbul in one hot rodded magic carpet ride. The music is textured and rich, peppered with hazily winding guitar licks and the authentic oriental flavour that Ouzo Bazooka are famous for. The EP has already received much attention and praise, being described as “a soaring adventure in exotic reverb and swirling lysergic synth hooks”.
