Spock’s Beard has released the first single from its upcoming eleventh full length studio album, Brief Nocturnes and Dreamless Sleep. The song, ‘Something very Strange’ is quite the interesting song, with its rather sci-fi feel. Alan Morse (guitars) said of the new song, “The album version of ‘Something Very Strange’ has an awesome intro that’s going to make it a great live opener – big, spacey, lots of guitar feedback and an otherworldly vocoder bit. Then the Hammond organ kicks in and we’re off to the races! It’s got a great groove, a crazy bass part and enough B3 noodling to satisfy even the most hardcore Leslie fanatic. The chorus is massive, especially when Ted kicks it up an octave on the second chorus. Then we go off into Progland in the middle 7/8 section, with Ryo and me trading off wiling solos. Then a huge build into the last chorus, and we go out with a bang! In addition to that, it has a real trippy sci-fi lyric about aliens appearing in the sky, and the people on the ground looking up to face what’s coming – which is, apparently, very strange! J The people come together in the face of the incoming threat and make their peace with each other. Hopefully it won’t take that for us to come together.”
