Föllakzoid – “Electric”

Föllakzoid is a psychedelic stoner band from Chile. Their dream driven melodies and echoed vocals transmit the nostalgia of the Andes Mountains. Their breakthrough album, II got them a chance to tour across the U.S. and Europe, with shows at SXSW, Primavera Sound, Lollapalooza and more. During that tour they got inspired to compose what it became III, their upcoming album due out on March 31st on Sacred Bones Records. While we wait for the release of III the band unveiled the first single. “Electric.”

Föllakzoid began seven years ago as a trance experience between childhood friends.  Their style comes deeply rooted in something much more substantial, meaningful and culturally significant, with grooves that are heavily informed by the heritage of the ancient music of South America’s Andes Mountains.

“We work in a very similar structure to mantric songs or techno, we share a metric language there that coordinates the musical language. There are many layers in our music, most of them unknown even to us”.   

Föllakzoid is: Diego Lorca, Juan Pablo Rodriguez and Domingo Garcia-Huidobro

Listen to “Electric” here

Föllakzoid es una banda stoner psicodélica de Chile. Sus melodías etereas y voces con eco transmiten la nostalgia de la cordillera de los Andes. Su disco II les dio la oportunidad de hacer un tour por EE.UU y Europa con pasos por el Primavera Sound, SXSW, Lollapalooza, entre otros. Durante esa gira se inspiraron para componer III, que saldrá el 31 de marzo por Sacred Bones Records. Mientras esperamos, la banda lanzó el primer sencillo, “Electric”.

Föllakzoid se formó hace siete años como una experiencia sensorial entre amigos. Su estilo tiene raíces mucho más sustanciales, con una carga cultural y sonidos que se desprenden de una herencia de la música tradicional de la cordillera.

“Trabajamos con una estructura similar a la de las canciones mantras o techno, compartimos un lenguaje métrico que coordina el lenguaje musical. Hay muchas capas en nuestra música, muchas de ellas hasta las desconocemos nosotros mismos”.

Föllakzoid es: Diego Lorca, Juan Pablo Rodriguez and Domingo Garcia-Huidobro
