After the release of “WHAT?” in July 2021, BIG MOUNTAIN COUNTY are back with a new single, “WHERE ARE YOU?”, with which the band returns to follow the path of contaminating psych sounds, exquisitely analog, with rhythms and melodic lines with a more synthetic flavor.

But, for the band, behind “WHERE ARE YOU?” there is much more. In fact, as already happened in “WHAT?” and unlike the past, the song production was entirely in the hands of BIG MOUNTAIN COUNTY, who, never as this time, feel perfectly represented their soundscape in the track.Over a skeleton of a reiterated rhythm that is not afraid to refer explicitly to the krautrock of Can, we hear guitars and synthetic riffs that remain around Berlin, but look towards California, remembering The Brian Jonestown Massacre. In the middle of this combination, a synthetic arpeggio breaks in, to soon gets stuck in the pressing rhythm, and finally get confused in the closing explosion, BIG MOUNTAIN COUNTY’s trademark.For the band, this track is also a declaration. They talk about it like this: “A krautrock rhythmic reiteration on which rests a vocal line with the lump of memories and range of possibilities in the throat. The song tries to define contact with someone or something that you don’t want to be lost forever.”The track was recently unveiled as a live version for ESNS 2022 and opens a 2022 full of news for BIG MOUNTAIN COUNTY. The release of “WHERE ARE YOU?” will be followed by two more singles, samples of “KLAUS,” an EP due in April that the band will be touring Europe in May, passing through Italy, France, Switzerland, Germany and UK.
