Megafauna Consider Universal Consciousness on Metal-Tinged ‘Panpsychist’

The psychedelic offering comes from their fourth LP, 'Welcome Home,' due May 27

“Can the whole house really hear me as I stroke my hair and these sheets?” Megafauna singer-guitarist Dani Neff asks herself (or maybe her house) on the Austin-based trio’s latest jaunt, “Panpsychist.” Though the track opens with a metal-touched riff, it slowly warps into a psychedelic excursion, more fitting of its theme: Panpsychism, the belief that all material objects have an element of consciousness.

Of the track, Neff tells SPIN, “It’s a mysterious stream of consciousness story about being isolated in your house and discovering that your surroundings are alive, being suddenly able to communicate with them.” The track is a second preview of their upcoming fourth LP Welcome Home, out May 27, produced by The Bright Light Social Hour’s Curtis Roush.
