On Monday, Deadpan Interference will officially release their new video for “The Whip“. But you should watch the video here on Bitchslap now, and then you should start losing your shit about the upcoming EP it’ll be on. Here’s why:

For better or worse, countercultural rebellion in Denmark is more typified by overcast shades of grey than by colorful expressions of youthful revolt. Other than Copenhagen’s long-suffering Christiania and a few family-oriented “communes”, the baby-boomer generation of this small, homogenous country met the dramatic social changes of the ‘60s and ’70s with a modest wholesomeness. For those who would prefer sex, drugs and rock’n’roll with Jim Morrison, the alternative of Tuborgs and hygge with Kim Larsen seems a bit bland.

Luckily, Copenhagen’s psych-scene is now having a second coming; and it’s probably already more impressive than the trickle that was produced the first time around. Premiering right here, right now, “The Whip” is the newest among these powerful rock offerings currently being served up in the chilly Copenhagen underground. The second single from Deadpan Interference’s forthcoming EP, it will prove once and for all that really good acid rock is still possible, even in LSD-free Denmark.

In the new video for “The Whip”, Deadpan Interference seem to be writhing around in a hallucinogenic haze all their own: there’s the entire band looking like a bunch of mods lost in an opium den, there’s some quasi-religious imagery of singer Astrid Samuelsen crying blood, there’s guitarist Martin Funder wearing an ushanka and a SARS mask, there’s an abundance of fake blood and velour, and if that isn’t already enticing enough, there’s also some sultry dancing thrown in for good measure.

Deadpan Interference isn’t just reviving classic psych rock and introducing it to a modern audience who may never have experienced or taken notice of the rumbly ripple effects before—they’re breathing new life into the versatile genre as well. If the band was born or based in an area of the world with a more intimate association to the music and ethos of the ‘60s and ‘70s, they would perhaps be more readily compared to Jefferson Airplane, for example. However, though this has clearly been an influence upon Deadpan Interference, they luckily succeed in putting their own spin on the sounds of their predecessors. All in all, their EP–which will drop on November 9th–isn’t something that you will want to miss.
