Forming in 2009, the duo of Jussi Brightmore and Tom Fug quickly established a unique approach whereby drum-triggered electronics were manipulated to achieve a dynamic, rhythmically driven and flagrantly unclassifiable fury that flirted with both speaker-ripping psych-rock pyrotechnics and synapse-shredding acid house deliverance whilst stubbornly avoiding any of the trappings or clichés of either.
Forging their own distinct geometric trajectory through their two previously released albums, the band mapped out a landscape in which the influences of Coil, Warp Records, The Knife and Lightning Bolt were alchemically transformed into an innovative and pulverising onslaught which can be heard with greatest effect on this new album 'Arrow' which is released on 25 January.
The Bside of the single is a killer remix by the mighty $hit and $hine which you can listen to here or via streaming sites:
