Six months ago, a Leeds 60s garage punk band were experiencing seismic
shifts in their tastes and mentality with a dark rumbling beneath the
surface and their heavier influences began to flood their veins. They
emerged, as a new band, translucent-skinned and bleary-eyed from their
cocoon as BLACK MOTH.
‘Spit Out Your Teeth’ is the follow up to their debut single ‘The
Articulate Dead/Blind Faith’ released to rapturous reviews and plentiful
airplay in January.
‘It’s Possible’ is the first taster from London’s XM-3a’s forthcoming
concept album ‘A Darkling Plain’. It follows on from January’s debut 12″
single ‘Bad Robot Man’, their 9.19 minute doom riffing acid-psyche
drenched epic, and is an edited version of the ten minute cataclysm that
will be a key part of said album, and a crucial installment of the
album’s twisted tale of a dystopian future following the techno-wars.
Finding a shared aesthetic with Leeds heavy rockers Black Moth, XM-3a
decided to produce a palatable 4 minutes of slow-rocking and monumental
fuzz-bass, grinding riffs, wigged-out acid solo-ing and angst-ridden
vocalising in order to share the sides of a 7″ single and reach out to
the heavy sounds of Yorkshire.
Split, the fruit of their duet, will be released on 6th June through the New Heavy Sounds label (Rolo Tomassi, PABH) on limited clear 7″ vinyl.
