Marble Mammoth – “Crack Baby Panic Attack”


Swedish psych-rockers Marble Mammoth show a consuming dark and stylish sound on the track “Crack Baby Panic Attack,” released today. The quartet’s meshing of riff-based rock and dreamy psychedelia plays here with the hypnotic structural repetition and gradually increasing intensity of distorted guitars and raucously enjoyable vocals. Whereas previously featured effort “The Light” showed a sound more in line with traditional psychedelia, with swirling organs and a dreamy soundscape, “Crack Baby Panic Attack” shows the band’s more rock-forward side with some grunge aesthetic — grabbing from the get-go with waves of distorted guitars and impassioned vocals, as intensity rises throughout.

“It’s a heavy suggestive track built around a fuzzed-out guitar riff,” the band says of the new track. “The lyrics focus around a destructive relationship, self-sacrifice, and a dream theme edged by jealousy – all summed up in the quotation of Barbara Kruger: ‘My body is a battleground.'”

“Crack Baby Panic Attack” and other memorable tracks from this month can also be streamed on the updating Obscure Sound’s ‘Best of March 2019’ Spotify playlist.

The track is also featured in the genre-based, best-of Spotify compilation Indie Rock.
