Albums Of The Week: Acid Tongue | Acid On The Dancefloor

THE EDITED PRESS RELEASE:Acid Tongue’s fourth full-length, Acid On The Dance Floor, showcases their now-signature sound and a back-to-basics approach to rock music. Incorporating elements of glam, R&B and post-punk, the album is a loud, funky and chaotic acid trip that redefines the Seattle sound.

Acid Tongue are an American garage band heavily influenced by classic soul, punk and psychedelic rock. Formed in a damp Seattle basement in 2015, the band immediately hit the road, extensively touring the U.S. and Europe and refining their unique brand of rock ’n’ roll. Consisting of a core duo — singer-songwriter Guy Keltner and drummer/vocalist Ian Cunningham — the band also includes numerous touring and studio musicians scattered between Paris, New York, London, Mexico City and Los Angeles, with a rotating roster that seems to grow larger by the day.

In 2015, Acid Tongue established their own label, Freakout Records, and in 2017 the band released their debut album, aptly titled Babies. The album is a soulful, stoney, heartfelt approach to modern psychedelia. Their 2020 sophomore album Bullies expanded upon the themes of their debut, cementing the band as the Pacific Northwest’s most unique garage-rock proprietors. For their third studio album Arboretum, the band recruited veterans from the psychedelic rock scene during production, resulting in first-rate collaborations with artists such as Death Valley Girls, Naked Giants and Canadian singer-songwriter Calvin Love.”
