There are real life dreams that are unending, circulating, whirling around in that small focal point of space you call your mind, that mind that you think you have control over, control which you have lost in all other aspects of normal reality, a reality which should be questioned and is otherwise insignificant, significance the only redeeming factor of life as we know it, and then there is the experience of waiting till the acid kicks in.

"Acid Kicks’ brand of “dream punk” defies the cliché while managing to remain relatively moody with a pinch of what could be called angst. With the numeric equation of 3+1 (3 bassists, 1 drummer), this four-piece’s tracks surprisingly feel holistic, despite the lack of guitar. For Acid Kicks, the backbeat’s essential is best proved by “Pyramidic Valley” and its shuffling quick consistence alongside raspy dissonance."
