"Party in Hiroshima make it their job to find a space for delicacy in a nightmare of blast waves and falling debris. A pure but urgent voice floats over a drama of guitar clanging, electronic noise and collapsing rhythms. In their words, this is glitchpop in post-rock. Children of the days of Throwing Muses and Dead Can Dance." (OppositionT) "Electro tinged rock. Girl singer bestrides techy, samples laden riffology.

Six By Seven

Six by Seven are a Nottingham, England based rock band who formed in 1996, specialising in a brand of space-rock that fused the drones, propulsiveness and washes of noise of krautrock with the abrasiveness of punk. They have released six albums, along with several compilations of studio offcuts and live performances. Arriving at a time of stagnating but popular Britpop and Britrock, they were unique not only in sound but also in utilising a saxophonist for texture and in Sam Hempton choosing to attack his guitar strings with a drumstick instead of a plectrum.

Golden Apes

The GOLDEN APES were founded in 1998 by Peer Lebrecht, Christian Lebrecht and Eric Bahrs.
After live-appearances together with Scream Silence and Whispers in the Shadow the Band released their dark wave/postpunk-like debut-album "Stigma 3.am" in 2000, which found regardful attention by the audience and the press.
In 2001 Drummer Nestor de Valley joined the Band and the result of the more stronger and the more intensive sound was the very dark and nihilistic album "Thalassemia". It followed concerts with Clan of Xymox, The Crüxshadows and Ikon.
