LISTEN: Birmingham psych trippers Brain Food release new self-titled EP

Midlands psych-rock outfit Brain Food are set to release their second EP on Friday, March 13th. The self-titled record has five new tracks written by the Birmingham based quartet, recorded by Mark Gittins at Megatone Studios Birmingham and mastered by Dave McCabe at Muthers Studio.

Brain Food is Liam McKeown (vocals, guitar), Jakob Edge (guitar, keys), William Scarott (bass) and Connor Doyle (drums). The band formed in the dying embers of 2017, and their sound pays homage to the acid soaked psych greats of their past like Frank Zappa and Jimi Hendrix, whilst creating brain melting, groove laden surf tracks.

Brain Food’s self titled EP coincides with the music video for lead single ‘Forbidden Tongue’, a cosmic trip through a kaleidoscope of colour, looking deep into the mind’s eye of Brain Food, shifting fluorescent colours with every riff and tempo change.

Since writing, mixing and releasing their first EP ‘Get One On’ in 2018 – Brain Food’s unique psychedelic sound has grabbed the attention of Birmingham and further afield, having headlined hometown venues as well as London, Leeds and Manchester, along with supporting Frankie and the Witch Fingers, Boy Azooga, Stonefield and Froth and performing at the prestigious Mothers festival.

To celebrate the EP release, Brain Food will be playing a headline show at Birmingham’s The Night Owl on Saturday March 14th, along with supports Cave Girl and Exhaler. Tickets are on sale now via
