Acid Tongue - Humpty Dumpty

ACID TONGUE is an American-bred garage band heavily influenced by AM-radio soul, folk and psychedelic rock. The band is composed of GUY KELTNER & IAN CUNNINGHAM – perverted in their youth by adolescent exposure to mind-altering substances and strange, spiritually-driven parenting techniques.

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.

Deeply influenced by Southern R&B, Motown, folk and doo-wop, the current incarnation of ACID TONGUE is an ode to a life spent on the road and a head stuck in the clouds. Equal parts LOU REED, THE GROWLERS, BRIAN WILSON & MAC DEMARCO, the sound is a dark reflection on childhood romance, confusion, Satanism and suicidal thoughts familiar to anyone suffering from the American condition.
