Shem is a collective of musicians aiming to create improvisational sound pieces influenced by a wide range of eras and strains of Psychedelic music: From early Krautrock bands such as Amon Düül, Can and Popol Vuh, to the oscellation driven space rock of Hawkwind and the meandering soundscapes

created by contemporary bands such as Electric Orange, Oresund Space Collective and Kungens Män.

Through combining elements of Ambient, Drone, Psych and Space Rock into epic, reverb drenched jams, Shem take the listener onto a cosmic journey into their own realm of musical experimentation.
