We are Henge.
We come in peace.
We bring you your first gift of cosmic dross - a kind of music new to your world.
There are no human words to adequately describe the 'Cosmic Dross' genre, though its sound is characterised by the thundering drums of NOM – an amphibious creature from the Sirius Star System – the garment-rending bass frequencies of the last surviving Venusian, GOO, and the whacked-out synths of the band’s only human, GROK. Over this instrumental framework, the band's founder, ZPOR, sings of his space travels and evokes a joyous celebration of life.
‘Indigo Dust’ is inspired by a universal feeling that is shared by creative beings all across the galaxy and beyond, as ZPOR enlightens us:
“‘Indigo Dust’ is about the thrill of making art; the rush you feel when inspiration has you in its grip!"
‘Indigo Dust’ is only your first tantalising taste of Cosmic Dross, for HENGE will give this extra-terrestrial genre its dawning moment on our planet with their debut album ’Attention Earth!’ scheduled for transmission on 19th October 2018. From meditations on Earth’s own heavenly body (‘Moon’), to prophetic warnings from far away worlds (‘Machine Landscape’), and even an ode to the spacecraft that transported HENGE across time and space to the Milky Way (‘Mushroom One’); ’Attention Earth!' is a light-speed journey through otherworldly sounds, an ecstatic hymn to the wonder of life and a joyful incitement to a peaceful existence.
Throughout 2018, they have scheduled a series of landings across the United Kingdom. These gatherings are held with the aim of provoking the proliferation of joy amongst humans... Be ready, these will be close encounters of the HENGE kind.
