Thought and Existence By David Terry
‘Thought and Existence’ developed as ours usually do, with a handful of riffs as ideas we bring in to the studio and gradually whittle down into songs. We spent longer in the studio this time than we have done before, making sure we were entirely happy with the end result.
I would say the central focus, if there is such a thing, would be entering a familiar trance-like state as we play, through volume and repetition. This is particularly important in our live shows and hopefully, the audience will join us in this endeavour.
The new material is sounding perhaps a little more ‘rock’ than our previous releases, with slightly faster tempos and some unusual twists. It is not a huge departure from the earlier material, but it is certainly different.
The first band I heard that had a real influence on how I thought about life and a real effect beyond simple listening pleasure was Joy Division, specifically ‘Closer’. There is a strange beauty to their music that very few bands manage.
We play slow, droning, psychedelic rock with an emphasis on repetition and atmosphere. It is music to lose oneself in. To us, it represents total escapism… a channelling of internal essences without thought for the day to day.
