TUNE The Physics House Band - Death Sequence iii feat. Stewart Lee
The Physics House Band are Sam Organ (guitar/keys), Adam Hutchison (bass/keys), Dave Morgan (drums) and Miles Spilsbury (saxophone/keys). The four create avant-garde compositions that capture everything from jazz to prog to psych to doom-metal, all combined together with a furious energy transcending to their mind-bending live shows.
Their recently completed third record (“Death Sequence” EP, out 3rd May) explores further into the expanses of intense darkness and light. Soft ambient synths explode into chaotic battles between angular guitars and saxophones. The gentle moments are softer, the intense moments more visceral than ever. This is a band that has to be experienced live.
The bulk of thE EP was written over a two week period in a secluded farmhouse turned studio on Start Point, a Devonshire headland located between the English channel and the Celtic Sea. Ideas were stripped back and rebuilt relentlessly over the fortnight until pieces emerged, becoming more chaotic and dense as the cabin fever drew ever closer. This record is a reflection of that time – the madness that comes from such an insular experience, but also the peace and gentleness of being removed from the constant overstimulation of the city.
The Physics House Band have toured and performed notable shows with the likes of Alt-J, Omar Rorriguez-Lopez, Django Django, Tera Melos, LITE, Jaga Jazzist; and gained major support from BBC Radio 6 Music, NPR, Anthony Fantano / The Needle Drop, The Guardian (New Band Of The Week), The Independent, The Quietus + more.
Their early releases have been championed by the writer and comedian (and experimental music aficionado) Stewart Lee, and in a twist to the tale Lee now features here with an intriguing and inimitable spoken word vocal, on the third track and lead single from the “Death Sequence” EP.
