Brighton prog-psych-rock band The Physics House Band are releasing their debut EP on April 15 through Pink Mist label Blood & Biscuits.
Their debut EP titled Horizons/Rapture is a 26 minute prog-rock psychedelic masterpiece. The EP consists of six different tracks all showcasing a perfect blend of musical styles, moods and aural textures. Despite the band members only being in their early 20s, their style of music spreads way beyond their years. Taking influences from the 60s, 70s, 80s and 90s, The Physics House Band produce music that is mature and developed. Blending the psychedelic 60s with the prog years of the 70s and adding in just a pinch of tech metal from the 80s and 90s post-rock, The Physics House Band’s experimentation of music ends up with them producing filmic compositions which burst at the seams.
The Physics House Band have been compared to the likes of Yes. Their music definitely does sound like something from the 70s prog-rock era, it’s a sound that gradually faded but now it’s back.
Kick-starting the EP is ObeliskMonolith which is like a punch in the face, there’s no avoiding this track. Hollow Mountain is track three and is a pleasant, relaxing blend of sweeping tones and gentle riffs. It’s cafe music. Teratology sees the EP pushed back into full swing. With a mild beginning, Teratology suddenly becomes one of the more aggressive tracks on the EP. The Spectral Beyond is the shortest track on Horizons/Rapture consisting of a beautiful, soulful piano piece.
