worriedaboutsatan / The Brackish
Manchester’s worriedaboutsatan incorporate swirling ambient melancholia, electronica, skyscraping post-rock guitar atmospherics, pounding slo-mo techno and visuals. Since starting life as a bedroom project back in 2006, the band have won acclaim from the likes of Pitchfork, Drowned in Sound, ResidentAdvisor and FACT.
A thrillingly unique instrumental band formed in 2013, featuring alumni of This is the Kit, Zun Zun Egui and The Liftmen. At the core of the music are tight arrangements combined with improvisation, featuring interplay between two distinctive guitar voices. The broad vocabulary of the music - psychedelic, metal, jazz, kraut... - echoes Steve Reich, Sabbath, Can and Tortoise.
