Language Of Shapes Release ‘Thunderkryst’ Video

South Korea-based psychedelic-folk band Language of Shapes announce the release of their new video “Thunderkryst” from their upcoming EP of the same name, out now. The EP comes on the heels of their recently released sophomore LP Mother Mountain. The five-piece band infuses mandolins, tribal beats and driving basslines with a post-punk vibe to create a sound that Indie Rock Cafe describes as “truly original and unique…a certain, stunning texture.”

Language of Shapes is the musical collision of five expat teachers in South Korea: Tristram Burden (vocals, mandolin, mandola, bouzouki), J.E. Seuk (vocals, mandolin), Courtland Miles (bass), Bobby Goldberg (djembe) and newest member Patrick Mackay (guitar). Tristram Burden’s songwriting is inspired by love, liberation and the restless streams of life and death on 21st century Planet Earth. The band has forged a strong following with their numerous live performances and are set to tour in the UK this August 2015.

Getintothis calls them “bold, entrancing eccentrics…” and Backseat Mafia raves of their sophomore full-length album, saying, “Mother Mountain is complex, dense, and modern without falling for any sort of modern schticks or trends. It’s a beautiful record rich in story and epic in ideas. It’s earthy, organic, honest, and damn good.”
