Free Whenever’s “Sicily” Takes You On A Psychedelic Journey Full Of Groove



It's easy to embark on a sonic journey with Free Whenever, and their latest single, "Sicily," professes how the boundaries between form and formlessness blur, creating a musical landscape that transcends genres and immerses listeners in a synesthetic wonderland.


Rooted in the ancient art of long-form improvisation, Free Whenever's philosophy explores psychedelic groove music, a captivating fusion of vintage psychedelia, dub reggae, eastern modality, and African rhythmic traditions.


From the confines of a humble bedroom recording setup, founders Trevor LaVecchia and Neil Guleria have crafted a musical universe that defies convention. With five releases in just two years, their work has garnered attention globally, building a dedicated fanbase eager for the next sonic adventure. With live contributor Brendan Steuart on drums, Free Whenever has expanded its reach from the streets of Manhattan to esteemed venues like the Sultan Room, sharing stages with luminaries such as Karina Rykman.


"Sicily" unfolds like a sonic tapestry, dripping with anticipation and longing. The instrumental piece reconstructs the perception of time, inviting listeners to get lost in the hypnotic embrace of thoughtfully crafted percussion and haunting guitar riffs bathed in reverberation.


Knowing how emotion casts out an atmosphere, the composition exudes a moodiness that seamlessly intertwines with bursts of energy, creating a raw and introspective musical landscape reflecting who Free Whenever is as a collective.


As each melody unfolds, the rhythmic groove of the bass line guides the soul through a labyrinth of emotions. "Sicily" isn't just a song; it's a visceral experience, a profound introspection encapsulated in a musical masterpiece.


Free Whenever effortlessly transports you into their world, where the boundaries between genres dissolve, and the music becomes a conduit for exploration and self-discovery.


With this track in particular, Free Whenever invites you to surrender to the captivating allure of their psychedelic groove, where every note is an invitation to lose yourself in the magic of their sound, and we wouldn't have it any other way.
