Biography

ALRIGHT THE CAPTAIN
http://alrightthecaptain.bandcamp.com

Masterfully combining virtuosic instrumentalism with unabashed musical experimentation, Derby-based trio Alright the Captain have all but effortlessly established themselves as a sonic force to be reckoned with, thanks to their increasingly inimitable, uniquely imaginative brand of math-rock and having shared stages with post-rock luminaries including Mono, toe, 65daysofstatic, Pelican, Tera Melos, ASIWYFA, Maybeshewill, Adebisi Shank, This Will Destroy You, ZU, Holy Fuck and many more.

With the highly-anticipated follow-up to their critically devoured debut, SNIB, set for release later this year, the band’s jazz-inflected craft is brilliantly propelled by an unrestrained restless energy and bold sense of boundlessness that recognises zero confines. Melding intricate fretboard tangents with summoning rhythms, noise rock throwdowns with delicate, effects-laden passages and painstaking instrumental majesty with an intent-drenched zeal, the band’s music evokes everyone from Don Caballero, Giraffes? Giraffes! and Slint to Tera Melos, June of 44 and toe. Listen.

“An unabashed love for musical adventure, Alright the Captain have produced a chaotically punchy slice of perfection in this stunning release.” – 9/10 – Tasty

“Although there are a lot of bands around at the moment making math-rock, there aren’t many who are doing it like this.” – 9/10 - The 405

“It’s a pretty snarling beast that has no time to waste proving itself to any ears not immediatley in-tune with its take no prisoners musical approach. So whether you take it or leave it, its pretty difficult to ignore it” - Rocksound
