Mythic Sunship is a Copenhagen-based band playing improvised, long-form rock while drawing from a wealth of influences. With inspiration from free jazz, japrock, kraut, space rock, stoner, and much more, Mythic Sunship is a juggernaut of fuzzed out rock’n’roll. Equally adept at noisy, feedback-heavy jams as well as spacy, repetitive voyages, Mythic Sunship’s self-styled “anaconda rock” has seen them described as one of the most interesting bands on the European psych scene, and with their new record Another Shape of Psychedelic Music, Mythic Sunship has made a statement to back up that claim. With the addition of saxophone to their already unique blend of genres, Mythic Sunship stands out as a band with a truly original sound, creating music that always seems to be moving forward.
With lauded live performances alongside the likes of Moon Duo, Träd Gräs och Stenar, King Gizzard & The Lizard Wizard, and Causa Sui plus four critically acclaimed records on El Paraíso Records, the band has been a mainstay of the Copenhagen experimental scene while gaining international recognition for their unique approach to instrumental music.
