Psychedelic. Math Rock. Prog.
All terms that have been thrown at The Physics House Band, and all terms that have been discarded, rendered useless by artistic expansion, about-turns and sidesteps.
An ever-amorphous project, the Brighton based outfit recently sat down to work on new material. Focussing on their next album - the trio's first since 2012 - the band have begun dropping new songs into their live sets.
Handing a video to Clash, we're delighted to be able to offer a preview. 'Surrogate Head' is a lengthy, deeply trippy instrumental track, shifting and evolving at its own pace.
There are shades of post-rock here, too, most obviously in the sudden shift between light / shade, organic / heavy which Mogwai employ to such fine use in their own live show.
As ever, though, The Physics House Band remain infuriatingly difficult to place.
