Wild Rocket have been developing their combination of heavy psych and kraut-infused space punk for the past five years. Since the release of their debut LP Geomagnetic Hallucinations in 2014 the band has gone from strength to strength, performing at festivals across Europe.
Having shared stages with the likes of Slomatics and The Cosmic Dead, their reputation for pummelling and immersive live shows laden with infectious energy precedes them. This energy has been captured perfectly on their second album Dissociation Mechanics, an album that explores themes of deep sea and deep space, the repetitive cycles of depression and the self-destruction of civilisations. The subtext of the album is influenced by the inability of the human race to learn from past mistakes and break calamitous cycles, instead looking to alternate dimensions for escape rather than efforts to change the observed reality. To put it more bluntly, it’s all about getting through life with savage riffs.
