Space Renegades started as a trashy trio in 2012 rocking their home grown garage and 60’s soul influenced tunes just for pure exploding fun. Somewhere along the way the material got weirder and more complicated and it finally crystallized in the debut album ‘Summer Destroyer’ which was mostly recorded in one day.
The ‘weird and complicated’ part started to take over and new material needed new blood, maintenance and scorcery. As the trio became a quintet, the project ‘Teeth’ went stellar and multilayered. The four year process led to a near break up and serious re-focusing but the band got their course back at the bright lighthouse and finished the cursed monster of an album.
The lyrics hover on themes of growing terminally older in a dying world and weird futuristic visions. Changes and endings of friends, youth, ideas and realities portrayed with imagery from scifi-comics, beat-poetry and infantile romanticism.
Genre-wise there’s strong influences from 1970’s progressive rock but elevated with elements of new wave, doom and noise. Instrumentation and sonic palette is sparkling with unearthly effects, classical instruments, buzz and rumble, vocal choirs and pragmatic beats.
