New Candys - Bleeding Magenta

New Candys have shared the mesmerising visuals for ‘Tempera’ from their third LP ‘Bleeding Magenta‘, out now on Fuzz Club Records.

New Candys hail from Venice, Italy and formed back in 2008.  After recently reissuing their highly-praised first two LPs ‘As Medicine’ and ‘Stars Reach The Abyss’, the four-piece are teaming up with Fuzz Club for the release of their third album, ‘Bleeding Magentas’.

Their latest effort is a seriously impressive collection of dark, swirling psych-rock – atmospheric yet overdriven, pacing but ethereal, brooding at times but always wallowing in a dazed pop sensibility, ‘Bleeding Magenta’ see’s New Candys’ songwriting at its best.

On the video, the Venice band explain: “We were interested in giving life to the imaginary of the album artwork, playing with natural and surreal elements, balancing what is real and what is artificial.”

Little Cloud Records was founded in October 2016 by Mike Nesbitt, Josiah Webb and Mike’s twin brother, Joe. What started as a way to release Magic Shoppe records has become a vehicle for releasing vinyl for other bands we dig. This includes releases from Pete International Airport (Pete Holmström of Dandy Warhols), New Candys (dark psych rockers from Venice, Italy), The Orange Kyte (tripped-out Irish transplants living in Vancouver, BC), Firefriend (São Paulo psych warlords) , Heaven (Brooklyn based psych rock) and Arizona’s Wiccan Godesses, Burning Palms. 
 
We’re partnering with a Portland, OR vinyl based plant and Joe runs a Chicago based printing facility. This allows us to produce all records, printing jacket design / printing and vinyl pressing in-house. We have been established by Cobraside in the United States and Fuzz Club Records in the UK. For digital distribution we use our own department to plaster your bit Across the usual suspects … like Spotify, iTunes, Google Play Music, Amazon Music, YouTube Music and many more.
 

The album title can be read as a cinematographic reference, where there’s fiction there’s no real pain. During the writing process we kept in mind the release format of a 12” vinyl and treated it as an extra influential element. The first side at 33 rpm with most of the songs written meticulously, the second side (tracks 8-11) we acted the opposite way, no limits, one long medley without overthinking, at 45 rpm. Visually inspired by Refn’s last movies and Argento’s early movies.

Written, performed and produced by New Candys.

Dario Lucchesi: drums, percussion.
Diego Menegaldo: guitars, vocals.
Fernando Nuti: vocals, guitars, sitar.

The New Candys will release their next album "Bleeding Magenta" on October 6th

“Bleeding Magenta” is the third album of New Candys, coming out on October 6th for the Fuzz Club Records.

The Venetian band, one of the most international realities that exist in Italy (judging also from the coming dates, between Italy, Germany, Poland, Denmark, England, Austria …).

The record will be released in vinyl, a media that is also served on the artistic side: “When we started writing Bleeding Magenta we considered vinyl support 12 as a creative stimulus,” the band says. “The limited minute that gives the first 33-lap side has forced us to skim the songs.”

“Doped, sedated, highly pop-psychedelic and buzzing in keeping a low profile. A long walk through the desert under the burning Sun.””New Candys’ chemical recipe verge more on a psychedelic drift, like their beautiful LP ‘Stars Reach The Abyss’ showed a couple of years ago. Hypnotic and sedated with ‘Dark Love’, faster and acid pop garage with ‘Surf 2’. The quartet know how to write a song and keep the good vibe on, wisely dosing vintage and ideas.”

Double a-side 10″ split single with Kill Your Boyfriend released  19th January 2015 on Shyrec / Xnot You Xme.

From the album New Candys As Medicine out on Picture In My Ear / Fuzz Club Records.

a psychedelic power trip that demands your attention from its opening bars. …surrounded in a fair degree of fuzz and an oh so inviting darkness. Indie combo with a vintage British flavour and a knack for atmospheric psych-y confections.

Their song ‘Meltdown Corp’ it’s an absolutely jaw dropping track. In fact, I had not heard of them until this track, but I was online ordering their album before the song was even over. And then I played the song again. And again.”
Dysfunctional trip, ‘Meltdown Corp’ by New Candys from Venezia, conjures gorgeously dislocated, psych-soaked abyssal plains.”
The New Candys as Medicine is the finest psych release since last year’s Goat album.”

New Candys first featured  on The Reverb Conspiracy Vol. 3 back in January, describing their stand out track as follows, “Dysfunctional trip, ‘Meltdown Corp’ by New Candys from Venezia, conjures gorgeously dislocated, psych-soaked abyssal plains.”

I also wholeheartedly concurred with Levitation’s review of the same LP which stated, “Their song ‘Meltdown Corp’ it’s an absolutely jaw dropping track. In fact, I had not heard of them until this, and I was online ordering their album before the song was even over. And then I played the song again. And again.”

I too had ordered their brilliant 2012 debut LP Stars Reach The Abyss‘, along with the exquisite split EP ‘Dark Love / Surf 2‘, (with Treviso’s Kill Your Boyfriend), before I had finished listening to ‘Meltdown Corp’, such was their tentacled embrace on my enraptured psyche.
