Item ID: 411294

Emerging in a haze of demented riff science and booze-addled
abandon, London-based tinnitus machine Hey Colossus have carved
out a notable niche for themselves in the British underground's
murkier quarters. 'In Black And Gold' marks a point whereby Hey
Colossus map out a sonic trajectory that expands on their
trademark ornery overload. The songs herein may be leaner and
more artful than the fearsome sound by which they made their
name on albums like 2008's 'Project: Death' and the monstrous
2013 opus 'Cuckoo Live Life Like Cuckoo', but they remain
possessed of the wrath both Stoogian and Stygian that fuels their noiserock transgression. Yet meanwhile, and with 2015
looming large, an evolutionary process has led to their
maximalist tendencies being replaced by a sharp focus on space
and restraint, not to mention a refreshing stylistic diversity,
resulting in a strange aural alchemy.

Also available: IN BLACK AND GOLD (LP).
