❂ I Know ❂
On the cover of the Trumpets of Consciousness self-titled debut album, we see Thibauld on a horse, a kind of Don Quixote of pop folk, like a troubadour riding a psychedelic horse emancipated from obstacles, in search of the perfect pop song!
Trumpets of Consciousness is an invitation to a transcendental voyage in search of Wilson, Lennon or Young. And with the track, ‘I Know‘, TOC present a cacophonous romp of wild colours with its rural psychedelism and progressive rock feel taking us into a hedonistic aural display of pop art.
‘I Know’ is a slow building late ’60s early 70s inspired psychedelic acoustic country/folk song with trippy textures, spaced out reverb-drenched guitars, fuzzed-out riffs & building drums that accompany soaring kaleidoscopic male and a choir of harmonic backing vocals. The track closes out with developing ethereal tones and washes, ascending to an epically deep, powerful wall of sound.
‘I Know’ is, in our opinion, rich in undeniable qualities, both in terms of composition and impeccable interpretation.
So what in the world are you waiting for to discover this pure jewel?
