Damien Castellanos, founder and front face of London trio The Oscillation, has been furthering Britain’s krautrock cause for the best part of a decade.
His trademark guitar sound is clearly wedded to the motorik musings of German pioneers Neu! and Can, and is always underpinned by exacting rhythms and fragmented vocals akin to the seventies stalwarts.
The band first emerged in 2007 with debut album Out of Phase for DC Recordings, a sonic experiment in pop-peppered psychedelia which set the agenda for their following releases.
A string of releases followed, both on DC and self-released, the pinnacle of which is the lithe and ultra-efficient third album From Tomorrow, which was released in September through the innovative French imprint Hands in the Dark.
The record is drenched with menacing guitar wails, disembodied vocals and a heavy dose of reverb, all coming together on stand-out tracks Out of Touch and All You Want To Be.
We caught up with the band before their album launch party at The Lexington, London, to watch them play All You Want To Be. Check out their performance below.
