Galway-based experimental, instrumental band It Was All A Bit Black & White, release their debut EP We Advocate The Piracy Of This Record this Thursday May 10th, which you can listen exclusively to below.
The EP sees the pair move into heavier territory than previous offerings (http://wearenoise.com/index.php/2011/12/it-was-all-a-bit-black-white/) courtesy of some fast and furious drumming coupled with guitar riffs which build to powerful peaks via the use of loop stations. There’s still scope for softer, contemplative moments though, and We Advocate The Piracy Of This Record has managed to strike that elusive balance between low and loud with precision and character.
The band have pointed out that it should be noted that together they have a combined staggering height of 11 foot and 7 inches, and have many leather-bound books in their library, including all the Spanish editions of ‘Where’s Waldo?’ signed by Waldo himself. These facts are crucial to their sound and instantly obvious from the tracks below.
We Advocate The Piracy Of This Record will, naturally, be available to download for free on Bandcamp from Thursday. It Was All A Bit Black & White are embarking on a tour of Ireland in support of the release with dates as follows:
