Avant-garde rockers ORGÖNE share new video off upcoming 2xLP ‘MOS/FET’ on Heavy Psych Sounds.
French avant-garde rockers ORGÖNE unveil their video for « Mothership Egypt/Rhyme Of The Ancient Astronaut », a new excerpt from their wild and unique debut double LP ‘MOS/FET’ due out June 19th on Heavy Psych Sounds.
This first video from ORGÖNE shows the band playing their songs « Mothership Egypt » and « Rhyme Of The Ancient Astronaut », from their « Anubis Rising » Suite. This total DIY video, shot one week before the quarantine, is a way for the band to present (with a touch of humour and even irony) their psychedelic, mystic, spacey and dreamy inner landscape, fulfilled with ancient gods from other planets and pan-africanism.
Their debut double album ‘MOS/FET’ is a 80-minute long sonic piece where many different genres are flowing — while the band’s background is made of prog rock and space rock, avant-garde and heavy psych, everything blends seamlessly with the unique vocals of lead singer Olga. The French deliver four massive suites of 20 minutes each, comprised of different movements: this non-conventional approach really impressed Heavy Psych Sounds Records and led them to sign the band on their roster.
‘MOS.FET’ was recorded at Blue Anvil Sound by Justin Nicquevert, mixed by Tom Penaguin and mastered by Nicolas Moreau & Pierre Le Gac at Le Garage Hermétique.

2015 saw the meeting of Nick Le Cave (bass) and Marlen Stahl (guitar), veterans of numerous Indie-Rock, Free Rock and Rock In Opposition/Avant-Garde french bands. Together with Mat La Rossa on drums, they decided to create a « back to basics » rock band, in their hometown of Rennes (Brittany). This led to the birth of ORGÖNE in 2016, with the arrival of the wild French-Polish Olga Rostropovitch on lead voice. ORGÖNE began to experiment and to explore many territories, mixing stoogian rock, noise-rock, krautrock « motorik » tracks, long impros… Those experiments led to a specific sound tainted more and more with psychedelic textures, space rock and noise elements, with progish hints.
Then in 2018, the departure of Mat La Rossa, who disagreed with the idea of long, epic tracks led to a radical but natural change : with the arrival of Allan Barbarian on drums and Tom Angelo on keyboards (both are also playing with the stoner band Djiin, who shared the stage with Orgöne), the band went almost back to zero and was then able to focus on long « Suites », with movements, in a prog-rock way, allowing the band to mix elements of tribal, arabic sounds, motorik rythms, organic space rock wall of sound and much more, in a very specific way. « MOS/FET », their first double album, reflects all those experiments, in 80 epic minutes.
