Just came across this in depth interview with Ex Easter Island Head at The Quietus from last December, just after the release of Mallet Guitars Two (pretty much on constant rotation at Capsule HQ). They talk about their memorable live performances, and you can get a flavour of what to expect from their show at St Paul’s Church on 27th April.
“I take joy engaging an audience with something that’s hopefully a little bit out of the ordinary. Also I enjoy the physicality of the experimenting aspect of our setup. Because we’re not using any effects, there’s lots of physically messing round with guitars and other instruments which is just fun, really! With the sort of music we like to play as well there’s that locked groove, hypnotic feel that you’re striving for with certain parts and big, enveloping drones. When you manage to nail that in the right space with good sound and a good audience, you can really get lost in it – a bit of a cliché I know, but for good reason!” Read the full interview
