“Baba Naga are shamen in a world where the existence of souls is denied”, says the psych-doom band’s bio on Facebook. ‘Out there’, perhaps. But once you’ve listened to a few of their tunes, it becomes clear there might not be much better a way to describe the Sheffield-based trio. Drones, heavy reverb, slack beats and extended guitar solos abound - transcendent music for the cosmically aware.
Having already released a two-track EP last year, they’ve recently put out another, Somos Lobos/Omdience on Naughty God Records – available on 10” and digital download via their bandcamp. A small amount of distributed material, yes, but of incredibly rich quality. They’re teasing us, and we can’t wait for more.
The band has received airplay on BBC 6Music, and are set to play Cosmosis Festival at Manchester’s Victoria Warehouse on 12th March 2016.
