Brazilian psych rockers Boogarins are heading out on tour this summer, and they’ve got a new single to accompany the announcement. It features vocals by John Schmersal, the art-punk mad scientist who you may know from Brainiac, Enon, Vertical Scratchers, or Crooks On Tape. The song, “A Pattern Repeated On,” is a hypnotic psych-pop lurch bolstered by squelching low-end synths that match Schmersal’s usual sonic palette perfectly. For the bridge, it blooms into something else entirely, something gorgeous and airborne. “A Pattern Repeating On” also marks Boogarins’ first studio recording with drummer Ynaiã Benthroldo, who lends the track some hip-hop pulse. Hear it below, where you can also find those tour dates.
