Acid Tongue is an American-bred garage band heavily influenced by AM-radio soul, folk and psychedelic rock. The band is composed of the four Manson Brothers, perverted in their youth by adolescent exposure to mind-altering substances and strange, spiritually-driven parenting techniques.
After years of extensive traveling throughout the United States, as well as some experimental therapy in a Mexican yurt, the boys have united to produce their take on the music of their parents’ generation. Incorporating imagery of the afterlife, dream-states and drifter-culture, Acid Tongue seeks to enlighten listeners to their swingin, contemplative lifestyle.
For their debut EP i died dreaming, the brothers settled down in Seattle WA to record at the Recovery Room. Taking cues from classic records such as Lou Reed’s Street Hassle, Steely Dan’s Aja, and Iggy Pop’s The Idiot, the boys buckled down to build a unique blend blue-eyed soul, glam rock and modern psychedelia.
