Berkshire based group Worship first cropped up on our radar back in March, but with just the odd live excursion, a radio session and a remix there has been very little in the way of new material to listen to. Having decanted to Norway to write and record, Worship are now ready to reveal the first fruits of their labours, and one track, Collateral is ripe for your picking and free download below.
With Collateral Worship assault the ears with the dirty stutter of evil-robot electronica, jerky clattering drums and a vocal that bears a significant resemblance to one Thom Yorke of Radiohead. Like a dark sci-fi war movie Collateral seems to threaten weary violence, but is graceful and composed enough to never do so. We continue to file Worship in our drawer marked ones to watch, and you can get the chance to do that watching in the next few weeks when the band play Club. The. Mammoth in Shoreditch, London on the 13th August, Tunbridge Wells Forum on the 20th August and then make their festival debut at Bestival in September. Moody, eerie experimental rock that is as unsettling as it is beautiful. Great stuff.
