Psyche

Psyche

Drop a needle on Psyche's debut album and youll see visions, or rather Mediterranean visions, be they of waves of heat shimmering above dunes of sand, or of women dancing around a bonfire on a rocky plain, or of bushy cliffs overlooking emerald-green and turquoise sea. The name Psyche is of course ancient Greek for soul or mind, signifying the bands love of psychedelic funk, but also the wide range of Mediterranean influences - from Southern Europe to the Balkan Peninsula, and from Anatolia to the Maghreb - that provide an endless source of inspiration for their hypnotic sound and minimalist style. Psyche members Marcello Giannini (Guru, Nu Genea, Slivovitz), Andrea De Fazio (Parbleu, Nu Genea, Funkin Machine) and Paolo Petrella (Nu Genea) have been active in the Naples music scene for almost two decades, most notably during the first wave of the new Neapolitan Power movement (Slivovitz, Revenaz Quartet). Over the years they have often crossed paths and collaborated on side projects in various genres (math-rock duo Arduo and, more recently, synth-pop duo Fratelli Malibu), before working together as the rhythm section of Nu Geneas live band. Following their first tour with Nu Genea in 2018, they started Psyche with the intent of exploring more minimalist styles and making music with just a few elements. A unique combination of psychedelia, groove and improvisation, the music of Psych goes back to the roots of our future; it evokes visions of a mythical past, blending centuries-old music traditions and mixing them with modern genres. Like a warm Mediterranean breeze, it travels across lands, seas and eras, distilling essential rhythms and cosmic pulsations. Psych-Funk | Afrobeat | Cosmic Jazz
