Hyper Tensions are a midwest rock and roll band laced with equal parts punk and psychedelia. Originally formed in the farmland of Southern Indiana way back in the early 2010’s, the band now finds a permanent home in Indianapolis where you can frequently find them playing at local haunts such as State Street Pub and Healer. After the release of 2020’s “Evil Seeds” the band continued writing and sewing together the fabric that would create “Sick Soother.” Recorded on a Fostex tape machine by Jerome Westerkamp (Vacation), “Sick Soother” find Hyper Tensions sticking to their raw garage rock approach but also adds elements of funky percussion, layers of synthesizer, and what appears to be that funny little electric jug sound made famous by Texas psych pioneers the 13th Floor Elevators. “If 1960’s garage rock had a baby with 1970’s New York punk and the only thing the baby listened to was a few komische records from 1970’s Germany.”
