autumn chorus

autumn chorus are a brighton-based four piece who play beautiful, epic post-rock music. Vocals have hailed comparisons to Jeff Buckley and Nick Drake, whilst the tender yet explosive nature of the band puts them in circles of Sigur Ros, Explosions in the Sky, Mogwai, and Godspeed You! Black Emperor. The classical leanings of the band come through within their delicate song construction, and intricate guitar parts, with their debut rosa e.p infused with haunting choral overlays.
