KING GIZZARD and the LIZARD WIZARD – ” Changes “

Posted: October 28, 2022 in MUSIC

Good things come to those who wait, and the magnificent “Changes” is worth every one of the 2,628,000 minutes King Gizzard and The Lizard Wizard invested in it. Soaked in the warm sonics of 70s r’n’b and guided by simple chord-changes that contain multitudes and rounding out another remarkable year for the group, their fifth album of 2022 is a luminous, soft-pop marvel. Come lose yourself in its slow-cooked brilliance.

We wanted to see how far we could take a single idea; a chord+key change from D major to F# major. What would it sound like if we oscillated between those two keys? Turns out, it sounded pretty good so we took the idea pretty far; we made a whole record.

It felt easy to be dissonant working within this format so we aimed for beautiful, fluid, purposeful, musical. This record is like one big song. It’s a song cycle.

Thanks to YOU for coming along on this WILD ride. It feels surreal to release this music into the world, but it feels good too.

I love you all, Stu xoxoxox
