A driving force in what some critics dubbed “Italian Occult Psychedelia", Heroin In Tahiti from Rome inaugurate 2014 with two tracks of their unmistakable Spaghetti-Sound.
On Side A, “Peplum" is an apocalyptic take on some imaginary Morricone soundtrack, filled with twangy guitars, doomsday synths, and even a mellotron: listen to it, and you will see Lee Van Cleef’s ominous face wandering in a fucked up roman borgata, year 2018.
Side B’s “Alo" is more in the giallo-vein and sounds like a clash between Bruno Nicolai and Demdike Stare. The track was originally conceived for “In Every Dream Home A Heartache", an exhibition by artist Phil Collins (not that…) which saw Heroin In Tahiti contribute with sounds and visions together with artists such as David Sylvian, Laetitia Sadier, Pye Corner Audio, and Demdike Stare themselves.
