‘Hop The Railings’
These six sonic warriors only released their last record in February this year but prolificacy has prevailed with the announcement of Radio Static High, Hey Colossus’ 10th album release, due via Rocket Recordings this October 2nd.
Continually evolving and mutating onwards from their caustic early releases, guitarist Jonathan Richards explains, “after 12 years functioning in a Noiserock/Doom/Kraut/whatever scene of sorts, and being aware of unwanted repetition, we feel it is more subversive for us to compose songs with rigid song structures than it is to absentmindedly clang off another riff-athon.”
The album’s first cut ‘Hop The Railings’ confirms this proposed swerve of direction, laying down a mesmeric, rigorous and driving groove that never once falters through its cosmic six-minute lap. Hear it below and be sure to catch them live in London on October 9th.
