Here to make a PSYCHIC MESS of your ear holes today are Brisbane’s RHINO, coming in loud and clear, and as strong as ever with their third single – surely to be a solid fan favourite and inclusion on their highly anticipated upcoming EP.
1 year and 1 month to the date since the 2021 Queensland Music Award Finalists last release White Witch, it’s been a long time coming for RHINO fans – but they know it’s worth the wait… with nothing but quality, talent, and expertise at the helm of this production, it’s yet another track that won’t disappoint! PSYCHIC MESS was produced and engineered by Lucius Borrich (COG) at Studio101, Byron Bay, and mastered by Tony “Jack The Bear” Mantz (Nick Cave , Silverchair, You Am I) at Deluxe Mastering
“The title and concept for Psychic Mess comes from seeing how a situation will unfold whilst being helpless to affect the outcome. Teaming up again with Lucius Borich we wanted to pursue a more groove-oriented rock sound compared to our previous releases which are more 4 on the floor hard rock. We enlisted Tony “Jack The Bear” Mantz at Deluxe Mastering who really helped round out the sound we were looking for.” – Simon Benson, Vocalist
RHINO began etching their mark into the Australian Heavy Music Scene in 2019 with their debut single Afterlife followed by an East Coast Tour, culminating in supporting Australian Rock Legends COG for two QLD shows. While 2020 proved rocky for the entire industry, they forged ahead with their second release White Witch. During the recording of White Witch, RHINO stepped away from the studio to support Aussie GRAMMY® Winners Wolfmother after frontman Andrew Stockdale caught the band live at their Sydney show and offered them main support.
Stockdale’s love for the band has been proven again more recently with RHINO being announced as the main support for Wolfmother’s entire upcoming East Coast Tour.
“They (RHINO) have a great tone & a huge sound.” – Andrew Stockdale
“No bullshit rock, backed up with raw, gravelly vocals.” – Tracey Moyle (Music Maven Events)
“With a sound that somehow walks the line between stadium-rock and heavy metal while balancing blues and grunge on each horn, I can quite confidently confirm the wise words of Benson last night; “RHINO… is a beast.”” – Rangi White (Good Call Live)
