Pink Chameleons release more ‘mega-psych’ with new single “Some Sunny Feeling”

More live shows including Helsinki Psych Fest

Earlier this year Pink Chameleons shared a couple of new songs that gave psych a new form, even a new kind of mellow expression. The double single release of “Colors Seem To Fade b/w Meat Deluxe from January certainly kept the hypnotic vibes so often associated with the genre but perhaps broadened the sound palette to explore new avenues. Pink Chameleons go deeper into this direction with the ‘‘mega-psych’ of “Some Sunny Feeling”, released via Soliti on the 3rd May2024.

Recent Press for “Colors Seem To Fade b/w Meat Deluxe”

“The Finnish project relied upon California vibes to craft this song, which you’ll immediately see upon the visuals, but you’ll likely hear in the traditional psychedelia coming through your speakers. It’s as about as true to the original style as it comes, but in that, it feels refreshing, as the genre’s been completely bastardized.” Austin Town Hall

“‘Colors Seem To Fade’…has a mellow slumber atmosphere amplified by the addition of saxophone and percussion by Jussi Hurskainen and Iiro Tulkki. The bass line that sounds like a swirling marble pattern and the timeless texture of the sound are also wonderful.” Niche Music

“There’s a kind of Scandinavian melancholy to the music I make. If you spend 9 months a year in snow, rain and darkness, it will be reflected in the art you make.” small interview via Revista Arte Brasileira

“This song is full of texture and vibrancy” Darkus Magazine

“Even The Beatles at their most Indian-inspired level of creativity wouldn’t have mixed those three instruments.” Nordic Music Central

“Pink Chameleons piloted by Paltsa-Kai Salama of the Black Lizard band lives up to expectations with their new single” Päivan Biisit

“Mesmerizing with its bass line and extra mojo from the soulful saxophone, this kusari gem is like a slice of California’s flower children’s sun”. Desibeli
