Hailing from Brazil, Peru, India and USA, the trio conjures a raw but complex sound, tending bridges between fuzzed-out forms of garage rock, prog punk and heavy psych, all infused with structures owned to south american, african and indian music.
WE HERE NOW is a multinational world-psych band formed by prolific musicians Pedro Salvador (Necro) from Brazil, Indy Shome (Queen Elehphantine) from India/US and Panchito, El Sofista (Montibus Communitas) from Peru. They have independently tour throughout South America, US and EU several times, and have released albums on labels such as Trouble in Mind, Beyond Beyond Is Beyond, Electric Magic (Run by Samsara Blues Experiment members), among others. Emanating fast n’ bulbous sounds, the music presents an exciting approach to the straight-forward aesthetics of fuzzed-out rock. They dig deep into their roots, unearthing the gifts of their vast cultural and historical backgrounds. Complex time signatures, original tonal schemes and a free-form sense of music-making are delivered with an unmistakable raw punk attitude.
Their debut album will be released by the German record label Elektrohasch (Colour Haze) on May 17th.
“A swirling headlong dive into seven tracks of somewhat nostalgic but also fluttering psychedelic rock… The songs remind you of everything from The Beatles to The Mars Volta, Thee Oh Sees and King Gizzard & The Lizard Wizard.” – VICE USA
“Marked by a frenetic shuffle and a still-weighted tonality, We Here Now‘s debut album assures a varied mix of sounds, and as they draw on different cultural and sonic methods of expression, they pack about two records’ worth of scope.” – The Obelisk
