Mono Poly, Beak>

Big week for Invada, and so too for Matt Loveridge. Not only does he release the discombobulating and somehow disconcertingly brilliant Doki Doki Run under the guise of Fairhorns, but his Beak> project also outed their first fit-for-radio single. Tuned in to that traditionally concise 3-minute mode, Mono is quite irrefutably their finest could-be-popular recording to date and were sophomore effort >> not quite so damn majestic, we'd be here bemoaning its omission from finalised track listing. The track again sees the trio scratch away at the dubby undertones to have dictated the d├ębut, leaving an impression that's as honed and scrupulously combed through as owt on that latest LP aforesaid, whilst still retentive of the viral statics to long since obfuscate what are, essentially, savaged pop songs. Mono is propelled, as per, by Billy Fuller's protuberant bass lines that skip 'n' jump about DROKK synths, strained vox, and slow-build Kraut before imperious domesday arpeggios are built to fade amidst pylons of polyphonic cacophony. A worm well worth catching for any early birds already up and about, in other words...
Beak> play Pentonville Road's The Lexington November 21st/22nd.
