Psych-Rocker Barak Grossberg debuts with single “Baolam Ha’Amiti”

Tel Aviv native Barak Grossberg has recently released his guitar-heavy debut single “Baolam Ha’Amiti” (In The Real World).

Produced and recorded by Assaf Shahar, previously a sound tech on tracks by Hanan Ben-Ari and Roi Lavi & The Good Guys, “Baolam Ha’Amiti” is a chaotic blast of psychedelic noise rock, full of bruising guitars and manically shouted vocals that build in intensity over the course of the song, all kept tight and focused by the rhythm section of Grossberg’s bandmates, bassist Ariel Harosh and drummer Mor Harpazi. The lyrics, reportedly based on the second chapter of Tanya (Grossberg is a baal teshuva through Chabad), deal with the conflict between man’s spiritual and physical nature.

A release concert for the single will be held on Thursday, September 7, at the Tel Aviv pub Bar Giyora. Support acts will include blues rocker Shlomo Mizrachi; Omri Vitis, frontman of Grossberg’s previous post-grunge band The Bells; and brother Yonatan Grossberg, of the metal band Kadachat (Fever).
