10 questions with Föllakzoid

Chilean psych trio Föllakzoid are coming to Bristol for the first time

Interview with psychedelic trio Follakzoid

New promoters on the block Lysergic Limes are bringing Chilean psych trio Föllakzoid to Bristol for the first time in partnership with BLG Promotions. It’s their second in a series of shows booked for this year that will aim to push Bristol’s psychedelic rock scene further than ever before. 

Taking some influence from the native ancestral music of their continent, Föllakzoid are also aligned with the German Krautrock movement that drew heavy inspiration from Anglo American music. Whatever you call it, Föllakzoid’s music will take you on a weighty emotional journey with each track, sometimes 10 minutes plus, building minimalist soundscapes that will leave your stomach churning in the best possible way.

They’ve realised three albums via US label Sacred Bones Records, although with their last album  being released back in 2015, fans can probably hope to hear some new music at this rare UK performance from Föllakzoid. Frontman Domingo Garcia-Huidoboro answers our 10 questions in a typically obscure fashion.
