Holy Fuck, This New Atlas Moth Song

  • Axl Rosenberg

I have a friend who’s always trying to convince me that all of this new-agey Timothy Leary LSD bullshit isn’t bullshit. And while I still don’t really buy into that, apparently The Atlas Moth’s David Kush does, and the fact that the band’s new song, “Galactic Brain,” is so goddamned good almost has me convinced. Almost.

Says Kush:

“This song is very much a call to action for anyone out there that feels like deep down there is a bigger reason that we are all here together, in this moment. You may think that the world as it stands is chaotic and full of randomness, but I would argue if you listen closely to the silence, and accept Timothy Leary’s and Terrence McKenna’s life experience as in the realm of possibility, you will find that there is an organized, rhythmic, mathematical song that is always playing in the background. Well at least it is for me. I try to tap in to that song and ‘turn on’ whenever possible and ‘Galactic Brain’ is our version of that universal song. The message is clear. And it’s not new. Be Kind. Hurt no one. Open your EYE.”
