With its Electric, psychedelic cowpunk guitar riff to set the tone, this track transcends into a shoe gaze experience with Alex’s dreamy vocals taking you on a psychedelic space adventure through the verses. Lyrically, she takes you on a journey through her own experiences with psychedelics and the rest is for your interpretation, as the track moves into a Punk Rock, Mexicana frenzy full of energy.
Catchy, big guitar riffs, groovy bass lines, energetic-rolling drums and spacey, punk rock vocals ..

The track was produced and mixed by Jon Shaban at Atomic studio CT (formerly STFD Studio) and mastered by Tim Lengfeld at TL Mastering.
WE KILL COWBOYS is a Cape Town based, Four Piece, Psychedelic Cowpunk Band, the brainchild of Tattoo Artist and singer-songwriter, Alex Muller.
The initial project was born out of the 3 month lockdown of 2020 when Alex had the time to rediscover her musical roots and put together a collection of songs for her first solo EP, entitled Let it Burn.
While the EP had reflected the more melancholic isolation of the lockdown experience – sparse arrangements, built around acoustic guitar and Alex’s plaintive voice, a gut feeling was compelling her to seek a bigger, more electric sound. Approaches were made to good friends from years gone by in the scene and soon enough, the group gathered in the live room at the label office to spin some shapes. Things exploded from there with the band drawing on their varied influences, spanning Metal, Punk, Rock n Roll, Country, Western Classical, Indian Raga, Folk, Blues and a host of other genres besides. Lyrically, Alex delivers a raw, uncompromising and anti-establishment polemic, drawing directly from her lived experiences in the music scene and the world at large.
We Kill Cowboys is raw energy. We Kill Cowboys is having a good time. We Kill Cowboys is about flipping the bird to conformity while sipping on some ice-cold Lemonade…
