Quiet, The Art

Spiders / Lowell (bandcamp)

By • Jun 21st, 2020 • Category: Single review

This Edinburgh duo have released a couple of instrumentals, their first by the look of things, and lead track ‘Spiders’ is rather good, in a post-rock kind of way. Obvious influences would be Mogwai and possibly Slint but they have their own approach to things, with the tempo and mood changing several times throughout the eight and a half minutes of the track…

There are some very interesting instrumental textures here, with a mid-track lull into some very pastoral guitar lines, before things ratchet up again for a drum-led assault…

There’s also ‘Lowell’, around half the length, but none the worse for that, wasting no time in getting to the point – which is a crescendo of spiralling, acerbic guitars propelled by a percussive barrage.

Newcomers who are well worth checking out.
