The Bristol duo will release their next EP, composed of installation recordings, in March.
According to The Quietus, the concept for the experimental Bristol duo's next release originally came from last year's Medium, which itself was based on recordings the band made in an old unfinished mansion. The group, apparently interested in the idea of "[exploring] the relationship between space and the fundamental properties of sound, applying extreme bass, noise and feedback" according to the press release, went on to explore three similar projects. Comparable installations at London's Ambika P3 bunker, a North Wales nuclear power plant (filmed for a Tate Britain exhibition) and a mine in Kent all provide the basis for Material. The EP will be released on vinyl and digital through Subtext Recordings, the Bristol-based imprint that released Medium.
