About The Black Angels

Conjuring a dark and moody variety of psychedelia leavened with garage rock and shoegaze-styled indie rock, the Black Angels became one of the leading psych-revival acts of the 21st century and helped revive Texas' reputation as a center for lysergic sounds. Embracing vintage sounds like the Velvet Underground and the 13th Floor Elevators along with more contemporary acts such as Spiritualized and Spacemen 3, their music is powerfully atmospheric and evocative, generating a suitably buzzy sound that avoids the cliches of the genre, charting a course that first found full flower on 2008's Directions to See a Ghost and continued to explore the otherworldly on 2010's darkly compelling Phosphene Dream, 2017's emphatic Death Song, and 2022's dynamic Wilderness of Mirrors.
