King Gizzard & The Lizard Wizard – “Crumbling Castle”
King Gizzard & The Lizard Wizard are still chugging along valiantly in their quest to release five studio albums this year. We’ve already gotten Flying Microtonal Banana, Murder Of The Universe, and, most recently, Sketches Of Brunswick East, and now they’ve shared a song from the next one, which fans seem to think is called Polygondwanaland. The song itself is pretty rad, and it comes along with a visualizer from frequent collaborator Jason Galea. Check it out below along with a cryptic message about it from the group.
In the presence of a mirror, my sensory foax-organs detect discontent on my facial image. I cry a digital tear. Motor fluid. Escaping to the floor, it reflects my silhouette. Frigid, slouched, callous. My smell escapes me. A rancid odour. I am everywhere. I am light. I am a reflection. I am that which I am. And I am violent. And I want it to end. Stillness from the grinding gears. I am a raging droid, with a full tank of propellant. Flick the switch. Turn them off. Standby. Cut the cord. Death is a lamb in a wolf’s clothes. A blessing from the lord satan. I am on the altar. I want it. The saccharine of eternal rest. I wish to consume it’s sickly syrup, and lick it from my many fingers. Take me into the moonless night. I need it. Any way I pass will do.
