Eucalyptus

Minoa


Linear A and Linear B, two forms of writing used by certain Aegean civilizations during the 2nd millennium BC. Linear A was born in Crete and on some Aegean islands from approximately 1850 BC to 1400 BC. Its relation to the so-called hieroglyphic Minoan script is uncertain. It is a syllabic script written from left to right. The approximate phonetic values of most syllabic signs used in Linear A are known from Linear B, but the language written in Linear A remains unknown. It must have been a pre-Hellenic language of Minoan Crete. Its eventual relation with the Eteocretan language of the 1st millennium BC is also unknown.

The music of Eucalyptus is somewhere between ambient and shoegazer, it brings to mind bands such as 90s drone band Main, Gas, and My Bloody Valentine. Linear A tells a story about the unknown empty sideways of America, a place that is physical and metaphysical at the same time, it points to a beautiful yet an empty and lonely one. Linear A sounds like a really long car drive on the endless roads of California.

Linear A is the first part of two and False Industries will release the second part later in 2020.

Eucalyptus is a quartet formed in the mid-90s in Sonoma Valley, Northern California. Appearing on the first Tonalism Compilation, Eucalyptus plays music in the Hypno-monotony tradition, whether it be psychedelic pop, noise rock, or ambient space. They developed their sound through 5 years of daily live improv, recorded to a Texas Instruments cassette recorder.
