The Willo/Energy

tough love



very limited indies-only 12"

Released: 14th Sep 2018

£11.99


these two tracks represent a binary of smooth & rough, in which the band effuse sublime, glacial kosmiche textures before ripping into a torrent of propulsive, krautrock attack.

‘The Willo’ is a dreamlike, seven-minute glide, redolent of a forest at sunset & just as pretty, but not without hints of malevolence. Maxim's fingerpicking acoustic melds with electric twang from Dominic, & a whirling organ from Max Oscarnold gives this elegant creation an extra layer of disorientation & depth. Then there is ‘Energy’, which lives up to its name with thunderously metronomic drums from Charlie Salvidge & a ferocious guitar from Dominic O’Dair. The lyrics, culled from a story written by Max about a nighttime ritual, are obscured by the barrage-like forward momentum of the music. Fans of the horrors, cavern of anti-matter & throw down bones need to hear this.
