I might as well say it right away, a Lagrange point is a position in space where the gravity fields of two bodies orbiting each other, and of substantial mass, combine in such a way as to provide a point of equilibrium to a third body of negligible mass, such that the relative positions of the three bodies are fixed. No spoiler here, as this is what the title track introduces from the very first seconds, the instrumental epilogue concluding the EP completing the journey started 20 minutes before with a looped track, 'The Three Body Problem'.

The Australians of Planet Of The 8s know about space, not only because of their name or the choice of the theme, but also and especially because their stoner rock evokes the desert like nobody else. The scorching heat and grains of sand tumbling down into the immensity under each step, the hot winds whipping the skin and the solitude sharpened by the elements become so many sounds forged by a hardened team.

This EP was born from Covid, when the band found themselves without a purpose and had to reinvent themselves, deciding to use unfinished tracks from the recording sessions of their previous album ("Tourist Season", 2019). But just to spice things up a bit, each track results in a collaboration with other singers.

King Carrot of Death By Carrot joins the party on 'Holy Fire', the first single where the two bands merge to chant the dangers of isolation. Diesel Doleman of Duneeater arrives then in rage on 'Exit Planet' before Georgie Cosson of Kitchen Witch comes to bring a feminine touch not devoid of danger in a 'X-ray' with harmonies leering towards Alice In Chains. Finally Jimi Coelli, escaped from A Gazillion Angry Mexicans, reverses the hourglass and raises the temperature on 'The Unofficial History Of Babe Wolf'.

Far from the antics, Planet Of The 8s offers an unexpected first volume and a point of balance to bodies that will absolutely not be able to remain frozen in front of such an inhabited music.
