Ed Wynne, frontman of the influential British band Ozric Tentacles has announced ‘Tumbling Through The Floativerse’, a brand new studio album made in collaboration with Gre Vanderloo of Gracerooms. The album will arrive via Kscope on 15th July 2022 on limited edition blue vinyl, along with standard black LP, CD and digital. You can hear the new single ‘Seen The Sun’ below!
With Ed having been a friend and admirer of Gre Vanderloo and his project Gracerooms for some time, the pair began working together in early 2020 at Wynne’s Blue Bubble Studio in Fife, Scotland. The album features guest appearances from Ozric Tentacles’ synth player Silas Neptune and Gracerooms bassist Paul Klaessen, with Ed Wynne himself on engineering duties and mastering from Adam Goodlet, along with typically psychedelic album artwork by Valerie Fangman.
The creative vision of multi-instrumentalist Ed Wynne, Ozric Tentacles are regarded as one of the most influential bands to emerge from the UK’s festival scene, formed during the solstice at Stonehenge Free Festival 1983 going on to become psychedelic staples at Glastonbury and other festivals. Since their inception the Ozric Tentacles have woven psychedelic audio-tapestries that capture the almost dangerous musical diversity of the free festival scene, blending acid rock with dub, reggae, ethnic world music and electronic, jazzy experimentation. The Ozrics’ uniquely trippy soundscapes connect fans of progressive rock, psychedelia and dance music culture.
