about

Cryptochrome is Bazooka Zoo's 2016 installment of space rock grooves.

Into The Abyss:
Cryptochromes are a class of proteins that aid in the circadian rhythms of animals and plants. For some species, they are also utilized to sense magnetic fields. Through seeing and feeling magnetic fields, migratory birds are capable of traversing entire hemispheres on an annual basis. It is through trusting this vision that birds like the 12 gram blackpoll warbler (Setophaga striata) can fly across the Atlantic Ocean without rest for over 3 straight days. A journey like this one brings the humble warbler back to it's breeding ground. This remarkable cycle of faith and perseverance is a true inspiration in a world filled with distractions. This migration reveals the need to go the distance to survive and create in the modern world.

Our musical reference to this phenomena reveals our trust in the natural world in relation to our pull to create. Like the blackpoll warbler, we journey into the depths of the darkness with no landmarks in sight but our own vision.

Trust the senses.
Feel the pull of the planet.
Listen to Cryptochrome.

Track Name: Way Beyond
//YOU ARE WAY BEYOND\\

Let's put our heads together
See what's going on
We'll ride with you
Despite the storm
We've been through thunder and lightning
You've been through torrents of rain
Through the rock and the rubble
Igniting fires of change

We stand on the ceiling
Open our heads up wide
Releasing the pressure
We're watching the clouds roll by

//YOU ARE WAY BEYOND\\

Beyond the iron sculptures
Beyond the stress and pain
We'll ride with you
To keep from going insane
We've been through thunder and lightning
You've been through torrents of rain
Through the rock and the rubble
Igniting fires of change
Track Name: Voodoo Biorhythms
You might fight the change
Shifting day after day
You might feel the strain
Pushing wave after wave

I am (listening)
We are (listening)
I am (listening)
We are the same
