Golden Void is the new face of Bay Area psychedelic music. It's a rich tradition and like many of the tradition's greats, Golden Void's songs are firmly rooted in melody and not afraid of exploration. The band's hooks get stuck in your head and their riffs transport you to the astral plane. Golden Void's undeniable twist, setting them apart from their city's lineage, is the influence of classic bands like Sabbath and Pentagram. The quartet, Isaiah Mitchell (Earthless) on guitar and vocals, Camilla Saufley-Mitchell on keyboards and vocals, Aaron Morgan on bass and Justin Pinkerton on drums, achieves a perfect balance of muscular riffs, soaring melodies, and hazy atmosphere on Berkana, their sophomore album. Recorded with Tim Green (The F***ing Champs), Berkana shows Golden Void expanding the scope of their sound without abandoning the heady groove they carved on their acclaimed self-titled debut.
