Kazimier Stockroom + Amorphic Music present Thrill Jockeys slow core atmospheric noise rock trio BIG|BRAVE.
BIG|BRAVE, the elemental ensemble of guitarist / vocalist Robin Wattie, guitarist Mathieu Ball, and drummer Tasy Hudson, harness an earthen heaviness composed of distorted and textural drones, austere bombast, and Wattie’s heart-rending, piercing vocals. Akin to recent collaborators The Body, BIG|BRAVE is at the forefront of reconfiguring the landscape of heavy music.
The trio brandish sparseness and density like weapons, cast tense atmospheres with languid tempos and mutate feedback into eruptions of enveloping tempests. Their latest release on Thrill Jockey Records, ‘Nature Morte’ sharpens BIG|BRAVE’s ferocity and expansive sound into emotional elegies for the disenfranchised, wringing abstracted textures and pure fervency into songs of unfathomable mass.
Support comes in the form of AICHER, the latest project of København-based musician Liam Andrews (MY DISCO). Translated as 'sharp, fierce and bitter (of the wind)', the alignment of this moniker is very fitting. Working within atonal and monochromatic aesthetics, the eerie hollows of wind, solitude and the soundscape of the bleak Scandinavian landscape can be identified in his brutalist sound art constructions.
Also on the bill will be Lancashire & Somerset Records' atmospheric doom - folk ensemble, HARESS and Liverpool based moody blues songsmith GADZOOKS!
