Jakob Bellamy This isn't the album you listen to tirelessly day in and day out. But that's not what they're trying to achieve, either. In Sun and Violence, Heroin in Tahiti act as shamans inviting us on an adventure promising to excite the chakra. Favorite track: D12. Costa Concordia.

Jeffrey Postma Great album! The bleak uncompromising landscape on the cover fits very well. Very atmospheric and despite featuring a diverse range of style it has a very coherent feel. Favorite track: B04. Black Market.

Gavin Hellyer I love this album. I've been listening to it on the Bandcamp app for a few weeks, so I'm very glad that it's finally available as a download. The record is highly creative and unusual, even avant-garde if we must classify, yet full of disparate musical influence, in particular distinct middle-eastern and pacific vibes, and possessing some very beautiful melodic passages. It's unique and quite literally astonishing. Favorite track: D10. Elba.

simon Electronic and organic mixture, with added shamanic chanting, rocky atmospherics and spaghetti western guitars. Favorite track: D11. Superdavoli.

  • Heroin in Tahiti - Sun and Violence 2xLP gatefold
    Record/Vinyl + Digital Album

    Heroin In Tahiti return with “Sun And Violence”: a new, mammoth double LP which ideally stands for the technicolor version of their “Canicola” cassette, released in 2014 by No=FI Recordings.
    As with the aforementioned tape, source and inspiration of “Sun And Violence” is Italian folklore and the work of ethnomusicologist Diego Carpitella in Southern Italy during the 50s.
    This time, Heroin In Tahiti abandon the freaked out approach of the previous release, for an almost prog-infused sequence of psychedelic folk dances, spacey tarantellas,
    twangy guitars, black market hymns and Joe Meek-style homages to the sinking of Costa Concordia.
    An epic journey into the abyss of Mediterranean psyche, “Sun And Violence” is easily the most ambitious statement from the authors of “Death Surf”.
    As Byron Coley put it, talking about their “Peplum” 7 inch: “so inspiring you'll feel like whipping out your camera and making a little movie”. Only this time the movie is HUGE.

    recorded in Rome, 2012-2014

    vocal samples from Alan Lomax and Diego Carpitella’s collection, recorded in Italy, 1954-1955
