Common Tongues (Live)
These melodically noisy art rockers skilfully combine rasping acoustics, bubbling electronics, intricate harmonies and acid-dipped violins. The Brighton 5-piece offer an absorbing, vital hit at live shows whilst their records reveal immersive arrangements worthy of multiple listens and lyrical themes of conflict, decline and rebirth.
Listening to the music of Common Tongues is like catching smoke; Its tangible essence might just be in your grasp when it twists and curls into a wisp of something else entirely. The language of Common Tongues might be their own but, when you choose to listen, you can't help but understand it
