Echoes and Dust reviews Hey Colossus 'The Guillotine'


It reads:

When a band changes direction musically it can very often be a moment where they either collapse, or it becomes a defining moment in their history. When that band does it on every album, sometimes twice in a year, then you really have to applaud the tenacity and belief that they have in their convictions. Not that Hey Colossus ever stray too far away from their original ethos, yet over the course of a few years they changed from heavy psychedelic noise rock to jagged post-punk and now, on new album The Guillotine, broodingly tuneful indie kids. Of course, it’s not quite as clear cut as that, but on the surface you can plainly see the differences in genre terms.


Not that any of this will phase Hey Colossus who stand as one of the most exciting UK bands around at the moment. Taking up home at Rocket Recordings, they have progressed in leaps and bounds from their earlier, noisier excursions...

The Organ say some words on Gnoomes up-and-coming London show


They say:

1: GNOOMES – “The self-proclaimed ‘stargaze’ trio, who hail from the Russian city of Perm, play their first show in London since the recent release of ‘Tschak!’, their second album for Rocket Recordings, which sees them expand their sound to take in torrents of guitar noise and electronic extrapolations both blissfully kosmiche and aggressively abrasive”, you can catch their upward looking beauty at the Brewhouse here in Hackney – The Brewhouse, 370 Helmsley Place, London, E8 3SB on Monday June 12th
