HEROIN IN TAHITI / Death Surf [2012]

Self-proclaimed "Spaghetti Wasteland" duo Heroin In Tahiti create a hauntingly effective brand of lo-fi psychedelic surf pop on 2012's self-released Death Surf.
Heroin sound as if they are drowning in a reverb pool of LSD mixed by Ennio Morricone and David Lynch, while Brian Wilson watches with a decomposing smirk on his face.  They are indeed a very cinematic sounding act that is composed of happy textures but sombre notes, which makes for a stark and electrifying listen as it pulsates back and forth between feverish life & welcome death.
An excellent gem that begs to be discovered by anyone who enjoys moody, instrumentals out of the norm.
