San Francisco-based psychedelic/rock band The Asteroid No.4 have dropped their new single "Swiss Mountain Myth".
The song is taken from their upcoming tenth studio album 'Northern Songs', set to be released later this summer via a partnership with UK-based Cardinal Fuzz Records and Portland’s Little Cloud Records.
Speaking about it, the band explains: “It’s kind of our version of The Shining. We were on tour in Europe a few years back and weeks into it hit some rough weather while driving through the alps in the dark. We ended up staying in a chalet in a small Swiss town just north of the Italian border. We weren’t really jiving well with our driver the whole tour, he was pretty much a loose canon, having these periodical meltdowns. He also carried around a knife the size of a machete. This song was written while trying to fall asleep in that darkness, nervous he was going to murder us all during the night. Luckily he didn’t but managed to be an asshole the remainder of the tour and thereafter.”
