Psychic Lemon make dark psych for Austerity Britain. They are the essence of a DIY band in 2024: recording, engineering, producing and mastering their music themselves. The band’s influences are broad, but choice artists include Goat and Hawkwind.
They live in Cambridge, the most unequal city in the UK. The band used to play in a shed in the garden of a council house, but have since moved up the property ladder to an industrial estate on the outskirts of town.
Unable to play during lockdown, the band put together their favourite unreleased tracks and made them available to download for free. This compilation eventually ran to four hours across six albums, with each album receiving a physical release on Weird Beard Records.
Live, Psychic Lemon have played gigs all over the UK, including headlining Norwich Psych Fest and playing alongside bands such as helicon, GNOD and Carlton Melton. In Europe, they’ve gigged in Germany, Belgium and The Netherlands.
They have released vinyl albums on Drone Rock Records (UK) and Tonzonen Records (DE).
