Recently featured in Marc Riley BBC 6 music’s best of 2018. New album “We Love You” finally out 15th February on Gringo Records. Anyone who has ever seen them will tell you they are loud. But loud and clear, defined patterns, riffs smoulder into drones and then catch fire again lyric’s trimmed of fat, precise and witty. Listen to these songs and its feels like being in a pub whilst your mate recounts ludicrous theories and romantic woes. You don’t know whether to laugh or cry and in the background the juke box belts out a mix of Queen, Neil Young, Pink Floyd, Bowie, Pil, King Crimson and The Shangri La’s, half heard above the din so you keep filling in the bits you missed with your own.
Rattle is an exploration into subtle rhythmic fluctuations, tonal space, and minimal melodics. Their setup of two singing drummers seems unlikely, but Katharine Eira Brown (Kogumaza) and Theresa Wrigley (Fists) use the limitations of their arrangement to create pieces of intertwined, flowing, textural percussion and threading sublime melodies through the gaps. Knowing accents and shrewd interplay expand upon spartan beats to create a hypnotic, eddying whole that envelops the surrounding space. Their second album, “Sequence”, was released by Upset The Rhythm in November 2018.
