This week’s WFMO X Music Savage Show “Song of the Week” spotlight is on the amazing new single, “Wrong Gong,” from The Octopus Project. The track is the first to be released from the Austin, TX band’s upcoming album, Memory Mirror, out April 7, 2017 via Robot High School.
The quartet have been creating their unique brand of electronic, dance-rock for fifteen years and have released five albums with enough psychedelic sounds and digital loops to keep you swirling around the room in a blissed-out state for decades. “Wrong Gong” keeps the noisy fun going strong with a heavy beat and what seems like a thousand different instruments mixed through a thousand channels. Plug your best pair of headphones in and experience it for yourself.
Octopus Project will be hitting the road starting on the West Coast in February before heading back home to play this year’s SXSW Festival in Austin. East Coast dates will be announced soon. I had the pleasure of catching them the last time they were in town a few years ago when they lit up the stage at the sorely missed T.T. the Bear’s Place. They are a must see live band.
