Daily electricity to load your batteries

6 August 2021

Band: SHATTERCONES
Who: Frustrated noiseniks from London

New EP: THIS SEPTIC ISLE
Out 1st October via Gare Du Nord Records.

“A blend of filmic drone, spaghetti western gothic and nightmare
slo-mo surf music has hints and influences from Tom Waits to
Einst├╝rzende Neubauten, via primal Nick Cave dramatics”

Lead-single: BUTTERFLY ROOM

In 120 mind-boggling seconds these Four Horsemen of the Great Britain Apocalypse
ventilate their frustration and anger about their country. Their sonic fulmination
sounds exactly like the current state of mind of the UK. Chaotic, confused, helpless
