New York’s experimental math-rock champions Battles have been at the very pinnacle of artistry, exploration and focus since their standout debut ‘Mirrored’ took the alternative world by storm in 2007.
Through 2011’s ‘Gloss Drop’ and this September’s new LP ‘La Di Da Di’ Battles once again prove themselves as a band characterised by an organic techno thrum of nearly infinite loops that joyfully refuse to remain consistent. The rhythmic genius of Battles as ever consistent; full frontal, heightened and unforgiving – the gauntlet through which their melody and harmony lines dance in and across their ever-revolving stage.
Live, the three-piece whom hold computerised loops in their brains, leave sweat on their machines and whose sonic heartbeat is unapologetically human, put on a live show which is heightened to implausible highs. So allow yourself to be fully drawn in to the Battles experience at Clockenflap 2015, and we guarantee you’ll be left breathless come the finale.
