Think of psychedelia without the colors of flower power, think of post-punk with only nuances of melancholy, think of art noise without extremism, think of chaos, anguish, anger, shadows wrapped at strident and strained doses of noise.
Formed in late 2017, Aufbau Principle create caustic and doomed post-punk. Taking influence from the early 80’s dark Manchester sound as well as gothic cinema Aufbau Principle create music from the shards of broken relationships, doomed cityscapes and existential nightmares.
Support From Gift Horse:
Gift Horse are a Glasgow duo combining the breathy chanson-pop vocals of French-born guitarist Audrey Bizouerne with the darkly comic Scottish storytelling of drummer David Maxwell.
Formed in 2017, Gift Horse move fluently between kitchen-sink lyrics that navigate the humdrum and the sublime, flirtations with surf and garage-rock, 4AD indie in the Breeders/Throwing Muses mould, and juxtaposed girl-boy vocals that recall the quiet intensity of Isobel Campbell and Mark Lanegan.
