A Sudden Burst of Colour
Hailing from Motherwell, Scotland, this quartet captures fans of electronic, ambient, dance and rock music with their soundscapes and encapsulating songwriting. Their sound is bright, shimmering and generally uplifting.
Their recent single “I Am The Storm” was premiered on Daniel P. Carter’s BBC Radio 1 Rock Show and they’re currently in pre-production for their forthcoming album, which is due for release at the end of the year
The instrumental quartet have four globally acclaimed EP releases under their belt, which is evidenced by features from BBC Introducing, The Scotsman, Earmilk (USA), Arctic Drones (Turkey), Stereofox (Germany) and many more, so this is a good time to catch them before they break into the wider world.
”Atmospheric, warming, ethereal, uplifting” – Punktastic
“A whole, a fun and meditative frolic through realms of bright notes and fuzzy ideas.” – Heavy Blog Is Heavy
A noisy math/grunge band, formed by members of Alright the Captain and Cheap Jazz, who we’ve been dying to put on for ages!
In their short one and half year existence, they’ve already toured the UK and Europe, shared the stage with Tera Melos, Tangled Hair, Alpha Male Tea Party, Chiyoda Ku, Memory of Elephants, VASA and many more, and played at ArcTanGent and StrangeForms Festival.
After a successful crowdfunding campaign, the band recently recorded their debut album at Nice Weather For Airstrikes and Snug Recording Co. and are set to release it in September 2018.
“A feast of melodic hooks that gets louder and fist-pumpier with time.” – Fecking Bahamas
A rare gig from the soloist, who creates layers of tight guitar melodies and riffs by looping them over and over again, before sitting down at his drum kit and smashing out some fantastic rhythms to them.
The range of dynamics and changes he achieves, as well as his ability to make the entire piece a coherent tune from start to finish, is astonishing.
We’ve seen him perform around the country, including at ArcTanGent and at our late night Facemelter with Poly-Math and EVILLOOKINGBIRD, so we’re glad to see him make a return.
