Brighton-based seven-piece ‘KEG’ make music that’s filled with erratic rhythms, dry humour and infectious energy. 

We’re not very forgiving in ‘Girders’. It wasn’t our intention to make something consistently unrelenting and abrasive, it just ends up sounding that way.

Whereas on ‘Assembly’ we were finding our space amongst each other, I think we’ve all settled into our approximate areas on Girders, something which I think we managed to capture with the live feel of the recordings. The EP doesnt really try to hide behind anything, we tried to make it feel like you’re there with us sitting in your favourite crumbly bum park with a very insistent nagging resident band. 

Whether it’s the death of a loved one, the feeling of not really knowing yourself, your body slowly crumbling around your brain or a mass cull, sonically and lyrically ‘Girders’ pushes and pulls the listener into peaks and troughs all the way through. Leave all of your clothes on and ride your stead through Golgotha with us.

These themes came about quite naturally on reflection, unconsciously they all seemed to line up, perhaps with the exception of Kids which is just a nice radio friendly song about hating your offspring.
