Australia’s post-punk legends The Church have released their first new song in five years. After the release of 2017’s Man Woman Life Death Infinity, the group have returned with “The Hypnogogue,” a six-minute long psychedelic rock song that finds the group’s neo-psych aesthetic continuing to evolve into the present day.
“I don’t think this song has any predecessor in our history at all,” said frontman Steve Kilbey in a statement. “The Hypnogogue is set in 2054,. A dystopian and broken down future. Invented by Sun Kim Jong, a North Korean scientist and occult dabbler. It is a machine and a process that pulls music straight of the dreams.”
