Two years after their first single release—‘Feed/Green Fire’—The Steams have returned with their first LP, ‘Wild Ferment.’

The title ‘Wild Ferment’ speaks not only to the album’s content, but also to the evolution of the band since their first release. ‘Wild Ferment’ is composed of impressionistic and evocative pieces, meandering between sweet melodies, heavy riffs, and dynamic drum beats. Eastern influences blend with the sound of Californian psychedelia to create a kaleidoscopic experience.

Incorporating collaborations with guest musicians playing traditional Greek instruments—the Cretan lyra, the laouto, and tsabouna (the Greek bagpipe) adds to the albums novelty and takes listeners on a immersive journey beyond the boundaries of the ‘psych rock’ genre.
