Following 2015’s ‘Get Lost’ EP - a straight-to-the-point punkrock debut - the band began the process of writing, gigging, destroying and rewriting material in an effort to find something new and more challenging.
With inspirations drawn from the sci-fi of Greg Egan and Philip K Dick, themes of Artificial intelligence began to emerge both in lyrics and the introduction of sequenced beats and samples. The finished album 'We Are Here To Make Things Better' - recorded over 9 months between Sept 2016 & June 2017 - is an AI lovechild of noise rock and sequencers.
Noise rock, but big on melody. AI-inspired, sequenced drums anchor bonham-esque live drums. Essentially a rock band but with an AI personality holding a finger over the controls. Musically influenced by standards like Pixies and Future of the Left, as well as the production in records like Kendrick Lamar’s ‘To Pimp A Butterfly’.
