Hi! I'm Koda. Aloha from the big island of Hawaii, and thank you for visiting the official
band page for Psychic Trance Fur.|
In general, the music by Psychic Trance Fur is "intense but mellow," a spacey blend of
synths and guitars, mostly instrumental but with some songs having softly sung or spoken lyrics.
I often tell people that if they like Pink Floyd they will like Psychic Trance Fur, though
the sound is completely original. You can use the music player above to stream the entire CD
while you surf the web. If you can stream audio in your car it is great driving music.
If you have trouble using the player, individual MP3s can be played below. Many of the songs
are very different from each other so please sample more than just one song. My favorite tracks
are (11) "Wind and Sea" (new age instrumental): (6) "Electromagnetic Love" (features my very
best, very subtle guitar work); (5) "Hike Like a Tree" (a popular chill-out song); and (1)
"Head" (psychedelic rock).
Psychic Trance Fur first formed in 1991 as a collaboration between myself and Darren Weight.
We created all kinds of different music without regard to genre, and never played live.
(We were in it for the music, not the glory.) We believed that if the music was good enough
it would sell. Unfortunately, that is only true if people hear it, and since the music is
truly original it didn't fit any radio station formats and we couldn't get much exposure.
In 1998 Darren moved on and I collected our spacey stuff to release the Head CD.
Since then I have been releasing an occasional song under the PTF name and made a few
videos (posted below). The new material will eventually be released on an album titled
Unknown Phenomenon. The title seems appropriate because after all this time the music
remains almost completely undiscovered. I like to tell my friends I am still waiting to
become the worlds oldest "overnight success" (I'm 63). I am sure you can imagine just how much
I appreciate your buying even just one song, clicking a Facebook "like" or "share" button below,
or otherwise turning your friends on to this music. Thank you!
