Following their 2021 releases on Heavy Machinery Records, BIG YAWN/LAUGHING GEAR & BITUMEN will take their unique brands of hard-hitting synth-punk & innovative electronica to COLOUR CLUB on March 19th presented by FURIOUS PARTY. QUELL will bookend the night with industrial clatter and EBM- esque rhythms.
Big Yawn make experimental electronic music by fusing a wash of sweeping synthesizers, heavily refracted vocal sampling, motorik style percussion and disorientating dub FX. Indebted to drum and bass, post-punk, UK bass music, footwork and ambient conventions, the recent Pressure Acts LP is made unique by its own dissociative take on live electronic music.
Launching their debut LP, Laughing Gear combines modulating synthesisers & drum machine loops with a howling, delay-induced & incendiary lyricism. The guitar work comes out drenched in chorus effects that allow the angular and anarchic worlds to collide, culminating in a highly original musical space that is provocative, jarring and exhilarating.
Fresh from the recent release of their 2nd LP Cleareye Shining, industrial leaning four-piece BITUMEN play around with a stylistic mixture of electronic/metallic-edged music that combines cutting guitars with synths, samples, electronic drums, and alternatively confrontational and melancholic vocals. Known for intense live performances which have led to playing alongside the likes of Lydia Lunch, Peter Murphy & The Chameleons. A zesty must-see if not already.
Quell is a producer and sound artist operating with hardware electronics and found sounds to explore noise and various dance music as a means of bodily affect. In 2021, Quell released their EP Endless, with Dero Arcade. Endless is a loose exploration of a personal acquaintance with a man of professional violence, and the events that occurred over that time. The result is a blend of industrial clatter, synthetic ambience and angular repetition of EBM-esque rhythms.
Excited to finally present melt in colour in March with some of our favourite local DJs:
