Bio:

Acid Tongue is the fuzz-pop brainchild of Seattle’s Guy Keltner (formerly of stoner-rock outfit Fox and the Law) & Ian Cunningham – perverted in their youth by adolescent exposure to mind-altering substances and strange, spiritually-driven parenting techniques. Blending elements of AM-radio soul, vintage psychedelia, folk and slacker rock, the band has developed an avid cult following throughout the US and the UK.

After years of extensive traveling throughout the United States, as well as some experimental therapy in a Mexican yurt, the boys have united to produce their take on the music of their parents’ generation. Incorporating imagery of the afterlife, dream-states, and drifter-culture, Acid Tongue seeks to enlighten listeners to their swingin’, contemplative lifestyle.

In addition to Keltner’s lyrical ode to all those suffering from the American condition, the band incorporates a brand of dripping visuals (drawn by street artist friend HAM BAM) that pay homage to Southern California skate culture, left-wing political activism and 90s Nickelodeon television. Together, the stark imagery and aesthetic have helped the band maintain a lasting impression both online and at their raucous, blown-out live shows.

Enlisting an ever-rotating cast of musicians, Acid Tongue released two well-received EPs, I Died Dreaming and Beautiful Disaster, in 2016.

Their latest release, the singles Get Free/Careless, are a commentary on the merits of remaining optimistic amidst this dark political climate. Recorded as a one-off during the sessions for the band’s forthcoming LP Babies, Get Free is an attempt to make sense of the mania, hatred, and utter confusion that permeates every aspect of the modern American condition.
