“Rom Say Sok” is from The Deepest Lake, the latest album by Dengue Fever available via Tuk Tuk Records.
The Deepest Lake finds Dengue Fever expanding their trademark psych/surf/Cambodian pop sound with African percussion, vocals that would make Exene and John Doe proud, sweeping melodies and extended psychedelic jams of songs that often time out after five or six minutes.

Busy times are on the horizon for Dengue Fever, as they hit the road for a cross country tour over the next 4 weeks. While the band will be promoting their latest release Sleepwalking Through The Mekong, this is not all they’ll be doing. The record is in fact a soundtrack to a documentary of the same name. In this film the band visited Cambodia, the home of vocalist Chhom Nimol, as well as the birth of the Cambodian pop sound that inspired the creation of Dengue Fever. The film chronicles Dengue Fever performing in Cambodia, as well as taking a look at some of the legendary Cambodian artists who paved the way for Dengue Fever.
On this accompanying tour, Dengue Fever will be performing songs that make up this fascinating documentary’s killer soundtrack! Be sure to check them out this month for a healthy dose of Cambodian-inspired sufry-psychedelic pop that only Dengue Fever can provide…
