Having formerly worked with these Welsh rockers on their previous project, Bomb the Sun, we were super excited to offer Estuary Blacks a deal to release their stunning debut on vinyl via Kozmik Artifactz. Their debut has been gaining rave reviews, and rightly so, this is an incredibly deep and intensely atmospheric record which you are sure to dig!
Hailing from The Gower Peninsula, South Wales, Estuary Blacks are a 3 piece band who play progressive, dynamic, heavy psych. For fans of Kyuss, Mogwai, GY!BE and Elder.
Recorded in the depths of West Wales in 2017, their debut album is equally gentle and soothing as it is powerful and heavy. Containing former members of Bomb The Sun and Tabularasa, Estuary Blacks have been quietly going about their business since 2014, and have been playing music together in various outfits since 1998.
"It is a truly magnificent album and simply has to be heard" - Echoes & Dust
"This is an essential album to have in your collection. It's as simple as that" - Outlaws Of The Sun
"It's a beautiful record, it really is, a reminder that stoner rock can still provide a template for grown up, joyous music" - Ninehertz
"Prog like complexity, post-rock intensity and stoner-like fuzz all weaved together in a tapestry of moving, atmospheric and at times breathtaking intelligent groove" - Desert Psychlist
"Having worked with Kozmik Artifactz with the Bomb The Sun record a number of years ago we were keen to work with them again. Our band is a real labour of love and we know that the guys at Kozmik have the same attitude to their work - plus they did one hell of a job on the BTS vinyl! Hopefully people dig it as much as we do. We haven't played outside of Wales yet so we're hoping to get out and play some shows around the UK and Europe if the opportunity arises. After 2 years of writing and recording this record we're happy to finally get it out there for people to listen to."
