Rokurokubi are a psychedelic rock/folk group, formed in Brighton, UK, by singer songwriter Rose Io (Rose Dutton). Their 2019 debut album 'Saturn In Pisces' is a kaleidoscope of mesmerizing psychedelic folk and rock songs. "Rokurokubi inhabit their own through-the-scrying-mirror dream world, one they summon up perfectly on this remarkable debut LP. Lyrically each song is a complete horror story, giving just enough detail to set the imagination trembling, with 'Love Song 9' and 'Meathouse' psychosexual fairy tales worthy of Angela Carter. 'At The Carnal Carnival' evokes some lost Amicus horror classic, and 'Tarka' hints at 'Willow's Song' from 'The Wicker Man'. Psychedelic folk rock with a doom metal soul, the music suggest Fairport Convention and Pentangle, Curved Air or a gnarlier version of early Kate Bush, while Dutton's deceptively pure voice draws you hopelessly in. But it's the damp, feverish atmosphere of obsession, damnation, sex, death and dark magic that lingers the longest." ~Ben Graham, Shindig Magazine. Sitars, cellos and flutes wrap melodies around beautiful vocals with introspective lyrics centring around a theme of birth, death and love. Folk songwriting weaves into heavier rock passages suddenly exploding in raucous acid-rock distortion.
On 'Wyrd Sister', guitarist Edmund Io conjuring Hendrix-like distorted-wah-wah-guitar grooves, becoming an intense wall of swirling distortion in the chorus, guitar wails illustrating the vocal line "Can you hear the wind moan?". Produced by Wyndham Earl and Lauro Zanin (Wax Machine).
