Thought Forms + Aithur + Bosch

Thought Forms + Aithur + Bosch

12th February 2017

This gig is for a standing audience

Since meeting, the members of Thought Forms have together explored an ever
changing sonic terrain; their constant evolution, coupled with the deep connection they’ve developed, has made them one of the most exciting guitar bands in the UK.

Finding themselves at home on the acclaimed Invada Records, if their self-titled debut for the label was about finding the dynamic limits of their atmospheric sound (gently prodding and probing varying elements) then the huge great slab of guitar that greets you instantly on their sophmore album ‘Ghost Mountain’ roars with the confidence of a band who’d found their level from which to fully explore their creative expression. Veering between two opposites, from brisk, scuzzy American garage rock to brutal, anguished noise constructions of ethereal psychedelic doom, the scope of Thought Forms sonic arsenal is vast.

The group’s familial bond has aided them in making their mark live; tour support slots with Portishead, 65daysofstatic, Beak>, Kaiser Chiefs, and Chelsea Light Moving (Thurston Moore) as well as appearances at festivals such as ATP, Greenman, Supersonic and Incubate have seen them cultivate a colossal sound that bands twice their number would struggle to recreate.

While touring with Brighton’s Esben And The Witch, a plan was hatched to release a split LP together in the spirit of the camaraderie that was prevalent in the alt rock scene of the late 80s / early 90s. This received critical acclaim and regular national radio play. 2015 saw Thought Forms support Marmozets on a full UK tour and perform at Montreux Jazz Festival before hiding themselves away in their studio to work on new music. The band have recently finished recording their third album for Invada Records with producer Jim Barr (Get The Blessing / Portishead). The as yet un-announced album will be released in November 2016, following the release of a digital single in October.
