Canadian Psych-pop band At Mission Dolores recently released a track that would make David Bowie smile, wherever he is. Their lead single, “Crash In The Jungle,” comes from their second LP release of 2019, set to release on May 3rd.
At Mission Dolores, a five-piece of self-proclaimed retro-futurists” hailing from Kamloops, British Columbia, said that “Crash In The Jungle” is a modern, bleak look at the ideas from Bowie’s “Space Oddity” in conjunct with Stanley Kubrick’s tortured cinematic opus 2001: A Space Odyssey.
The track comes as an audible nod to the weightlessness inspired by space travel, launching the listener up and out of the atmosphere after a series of sonic steps that resembles a launch sequence. As the spacerock-psychedelia starts to take you in, you will feel the earthly force of gravity slip away.
“This song is an update of the spirit behind David Bowie’s “Space Oddity.” The world is spilling out of control and this is the numbing agent.”
