Pulled together from recordings from the past 12 months, Vicious Circles’ is a collection of  songs and explorations culled from their old Cejl studio in Brno, now defunct. Moody and unpredictable, the songs veer wildly from post-rock improv workouts to droney space-Krautrock; manic post-punk jams to gentle, satirical homages to Moz. The songs rely heavily on long, looping grooves, and Vicious Circles refers to the feeling that we, as a society, are caught in a downward spiral.

There are the usual political themes and environmental themes in there, but they’re not overt. It feels like we are in a cycle viciousness at the moment, media-wise (echo-chamber), culturally (tech), politically. The songs touch on these things. The other main theme would be obsessiveness, our freakish obsessions. Technology, ideology and real germs.

‘Vicious Circles’ is out on Happy Mutant released digitally. Its special vinyl release is expected in April together with a Czech and European tour.

All songs written by Rhys Braddock, Honza Čapek, Lukáš Baumann.

Recorded, mixed and produced by Rhys Braddock
