An neo-psychedelic trip through electronica
It was April 2015, when Thor Rixon got ‘fuk bread’ tattooed on the back on his freshly shaved head in the performance art video for the track of the same name. The single preceded the Songs From The Bath album which was due to be released early in 2016, however, in the same way change was a primary theme of the track and video, things changed in reality.
Thor spent the year performing some major festivals and even more boutique festivals before heading out to Berlin to spend more time busking, missing trains, being vegan and most importantly, finishing up the album.
December 2016 saw the vinyl pre-release of Songs From The Bath. In true Thor fashion, the deluxe edition vinyl release was a turquoise translucent vinyl with a hand painted cover (painted by Thor himself) which also came with a limited edition embroidered tee and homemade bath salts.
Today marks the official digital release of Songs From The Bath and our first play of the 7-track album suggests the wait to be worthwhile. Littered with features from collaborators including Hlasko, Itai Hakim, Alice Phoebe Lou, Olmo and many other unlisted artists, Songs From The Bath is an extravagant arrangement of Thor’s eclectic influences. From the hauntingly meditative ‘The Drain’ to the jazzy ‘Puddles’, Thor has you guessing at each turn and all the more eager for the journey regardless of the destination.
