Cervus - Cycles (Single Review)

Release Date: May 20th 2022. Record Label: Self Released. Format: DD

Cycles - Tracklisting



Cycles is the epic new single from Dutch Psych Stoner Rockers Cervus who impressed with their debut EP Ignis back in Dec 2021. Cycles carry on similar themes and sounds first heard on Ignis but perhaps with a way more Progressive feel being added. The song resides between the Post-Doom and Post-Stoner COSMOS with a “jazzy” approach first being used especially with the vocals and psychedelic elements of the song.

You can watch the video for the song below:

The song is more restrained at first with Cervus playing at their own speed but this is an enticing blend of Psych Stoner Rock sounds with a more “Post-Whatever” intensity behind it all. There’s a 70’s Prog Rock feeling held within the song and when Cervus starts adding heavier guitar tones, the song truly takes off for an exciting finish.

Cycles is a damn good song with top-notch production values allowing Cervus to try a few new things when compared to their debut EP. Let’s hope a new EP or full length album is being planned. As Cervus have delivered their best musical output to date.

Excellent and Highly Recommended.
