Thought Forms - Songs About Drowning
Label INVADA Records
Invada Records’ Thought Forms are that very rare band for whom the term “sonic progression” actually applies. With the Wiltshire three piece’s critically acclaimed eponymous debut, the band experimented with a beguiling, compelling atmospheric sound, all cinematic soundscapes and yawning chasms of noise. With their sophomore effort ‘Ghost Mountain’, the band found their teeth, biting back with a monster of a record that sounded as visceral and immediate as it was loose and experimental, and appearances on the award-winning “Ex Machina” soundtrack and with Adrian Utley’s Guitar Orchestra have cemented the band’s position in the vanguard of exciting, experimental new British acts.
Now, with their third full length release ‘Songs About Drowning’, Charlie Romijn (guitars / vocals), Deej Dhariwal (guitars / vocals) and Guy Metcalfe (drums) kick it up yet another notch, pushing the boat out even further to create a strange, intoxicating album, their most accomplished to date and certainly their most fascinating.
