Biography

Experimental act formed by Alex Cobb and David Kirby. In describing Dust, Static the debut wire thicket album, released on PseudoArcana in 2006, it’s owner Antony Milton applied to the duo the term “.” On their second outing, the pair have fully embraced this label and taken it to new, delirious peaks. The title track is a fifteen minute blast of singing, celestial metal; an impassioned, deeply meditative flight into the starry night conjured from guitar, electronics and field recordings. Characteristic of the duo’s prior work together, the piece is an excercise in accretion — with layers and layers of meticulously detailed sound arranged into a furious, beautiful blanket of howling drone. Emerging from the tonal rubble is a second, shorter piece: a reworking of Taiga RemainsBrilliant Dead Highways (a piece featured previously on a split 7’’ with CJA) - akin to a delicate, drifting calm at the end of an immense storn.
