POST-PUNK indie-psychedelics ABRASIVE TREES visit the capital city this Thursday (24th) with an appearance at Dalston’s ‘Servant Jazz Quarters.’
For anyone new to the band, ‘BBC Introducing’ have described Abrasive Trees as, “…a transcendent experience of euphoric dissonance.”
Their musical creations, led by Matthew Rochford, display a willingness to experiment alongside a sound that sits loosely within the post-punk aesthetic with definite influences from post-rock, folk, and psychedelia.
Having worked with Rothko, Seb Rochford, Steven Hill and Jo-Beth Young, the band now includes Ben Roberts on cello, Jay Newton on guitars Jerome Hitchens on drums and visual artist Jess Wooller.
Expect intertwining guitars, distorted cello, and leviathan drums – set against delicate, yet stark vocals and spectral spoken word.
The evening will also feature a solo set from Prosthetic Head.
