Southhampton math rock act Sketchshow are off to a rocketing start. Having formed only a year ago, the quintet are already well on the road to world domination, with their debut EP Patchwork
hitting the internet shelves next month. The band take influence from a range of acts: Intervals, Sithu Aye, CHON, Snarky Puppy, The Internet and Everything Everything.
The consolation of math rock is that the unexpected is expected. The listener is often presented with a non-conventional sensory overload and, as the song finishes, are left picking up the many pieces and trying to make sense of them.
Since their self-titled release in 2011, And So I Watch You From Afar has been crafting a unique blend of boisterous and energetic instrumental rock, with heavy emphasis on guitar shredding and digital pedal trickery.
Sheffield-via-Ireland math rockers Ganglionshave unveiled their second group of thoughtfully crafted quintuplets unto the world. The 4 songs on Thirsty are further proof of the band's hard work in 2017, considering their debut EP Fetch! was also released this year.
