The Acid, who LA Weekly dubbed “electronic soul transcendentalists” have made their national television debut, performing “Basic Instinct” live for Last Call With Carson Daly. Watch the mesmerizing excerpt from their Greek Theatre show which aired on Wednesday night, here.

The Acid’s debut full length, Liminal, which Stereogum described as “super chilled-out neo R&B” and Pitchfork tipped as “a testament to The Acid’s breadth of vision and production prowess” is out now via Mute in the US and Infectious for the rest of the world.

The Acid came together from three separate worlds, joining together through a profound synchronicity. They are globe trotting, Grammy nominated DJ & Producer Adam Freeland, creator of subversive crossover hit ‘We Want Your Soul’, spearhead of a scene and label boss of Brighton’s Marine Parade Records; Californian Polymath Steve Nalepa, whose time is split as a producer, composer, professor of music technology; and Australian, LA based artist and producer Ry X, whose ‘Berlin EP’ was released in late 2013 to softly bubbling acclaim, and who, with his other alter ego as one half of Howling, created an eponymous club smash and toured heavily through 2013’s festival circuit.

The sound they’ve created together is truly genre-less, a term used with increasing frequency but never quite so well suited as to them. The guitar, at times three or four of them layered together, seamlessly blends in amongst bass shudders, beat pulses and elongated drones as Ry’s vocals beatify then rage amidst delicate synth lines and pitched down field recordings of street noise, birds, the clacking of bicycle spokes and the creaking of a leather jacket. The Acid weren’t even sure what they were composing at first, as Ry describes, “It’s like painting before you know what you are painting. You’re stuck in the process before you’ve got an idea of what you’re making. The beauty of that is complete freedom.
