Sometimes, you can be pretty well certain what to expect just by reading a band’s name. In the case of Brighton trio Poly-Math, yep, it’s complex, conceptual, post-rock, math-rock all the way. Yet their cosmic, almost demented instrumental sound is elevating this into the realms of the astonishing. A double LP, House of Wisdom/We Are The Devil, has just been announced, to be released on Lonely Voyage Records and the Brighton-based Nice Weather For Airstrikes, on 20th April.
Check out this live session video for two of the album’s tracks, ‘Ink of Scholars’ and ‘Blood of Tigris’, which was recorded and filmed at the Small Pond Recording headquarters in Brighton, perfectly showcasing their instrumental prowess, and their love for all things prog, such as King Crimson and The Mars Volta.
