Psychedelic Porn Crumpets are back with a new single “Mr Prism,” a gorgeously messy piece of bursting beats and endless cacophonous layers that all come together in a crazy euphony. If the track seems to transport you in a blissfully stressful delirium, you’re not alone. It is the byproduct of being misdiagnosed with tonsillitis and later finding out that you have pneumonia during a hectic tour schedule. Enjoy:

Recounting the influence behind the single, songwriter Jack McEwan commented, “After our last tour of Europe I had a plethora of reasons to see a doctor. First, he thought I had tonsillitis, so prescribed me penicillin, which didn’t help at all. I did Falls Festival over New Year’s and barely got through – turns out I had pneumonia. I was pushing through on all sorts of meds until someone offered me the HMS Hunter alternative and I realized no matter how I’d ever be, I could never turn one down. Mr. Prism (my sickly fun-fuelled fiend of an alter-ego) was born.”

PPC are currently working on their fourth studio album, which will be out early next year-ish.
