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, formerly of Fox and the Law, and 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.
Recorded in Seattle and Portland during the tumultuous 2016 election, Acid Tongue’s debut LP, aptly named Babies, is a soulful, stoney, heartfelt approach to modern psychedelia. Engineered and produced by Matt Drenik (Battleme, Danny Dodge), the album provides a glimpse of blue-collar American soul warped by a crumbling American democracy and a rose-colored look back at 90s pop culture.
Deeply influenced by Southern R&B, Motown, folk and doo-wop, frontman Guy Keltner’s current incarnation as 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 and Built To Spill, the sound is a dark reflection on childhood romance, confusion, Satanism and suicidal thoughts familiar to anyone suffering from the American condition.
