The Decibel Tolls - Lumerians Dip Into Czech Cinema and Hypersurrealism



Behold this slice of hyper-surrealism that exists somewhere between creepy eroticism and a mind-bending, nightmarish acid trip from Oakland’s industrial paisley psych warriors Lumerians. Both the song and video take inspiration from the 1970 cult film Eden and After, an abstract, dream-like film packed with the type of drug-induced hallucinations evocative of Czech cinema at the time. “After Eden” is a brand new jam following up their debut full-length released earlier this year, Transmalinnia-– a refreshingly stripped down collection of trippy garage rock and punchy, slow-burning ambience. Lumerians undoubtedly have more tricks in their arsenal, so keep these guys on your radar. Additionally, should you find yourself in the mild climate of the Pacific Northwest, you can catch them Friday night at Vancouver’s The Media Club, Saturday in Portland at Doug Fir, or Sunday during Seattle’s massive street festival, Capitol Hill Block Party.
