“Sans Souci is a continuous piece of music that ascends and descends with ease. Articulate, virtuoso and surprisingly entertaining!” – Clash Magazine
“A hugely accomplished debut” – Kerrang
Drawing upon the influence of Battles, Russian Circles and Don Caballero, Brontide are a riff-heavy, intelligent instrumental-rock band that possesses an almost limitless scope. Featuring members fromI Was A Cub Scout, La Roux and Pictures, Brontide explore and experiment beyond the boundaries of instrumental music with explosive effects. With dreamy melodies cast adrift by frenetic, technical drumbeats and big guitar loops, it’s no wonder they have already gained a cult following.
After racking up Radio 1 airplay, a tour with Minus The Bear and shows with bands such as Don Caballero, Cut Off Their Hands, The XX, Rolo Tomassi and Pulled Apart By Horses in the UK, the band are taking their ferocious tunes Stateside for a digital release.
Recorded as one continuous piece of music, “Sans Souci” has been played on the road it its entirety throughout the UK and Europe to sold out crowds. The band will be continuing to tour in support of the album with a UK tour in February 2012.
