How does an evening of psychedelic, ear-fuzzing, intoxicating music sound to you? If that’s something that might appeal to you, then you’re not going to want to miss Thought Forms when they play The Cluny on Tuesday 21st February.
The Wiltshire trio, who also boast Jim Barr from Portishead as a major collaborator, combine the sound of nineties Bristol trip-hop with a modern metal edge, creating soundscapes that bridge black holes of noise, painting lonely landscapes in the listener’s mind. Between the lilting, lullaby voices of the dual vocalists and guitarists Charlie Romijin and Deei Dhariwal and the playful percussion of Guy Metcalfe, they produce a remarkable constellation of ideas.
Having received critical acclaim for their recently released third album Songs About Drowning, with The Skinny comparing them to “Sonic Youth on a shoegaze binge”, and toured with acts including Portishead, Beak >, Kaiser Chiefs, 65daysofstatic and Chelsea Light Moving, this is a very special band to see, a band with an otherworldly and unique sound.
Supporting them on the night is the equally hard to define Chlorine, a Sunderland-based electronic artist whose sets combine digital sound, harmonious drone and distorted fast-moving loops of found sound to stunning effect.
