Mutant-Thoughts will finally be releasing their highly expected EP which they recorded with Sylvia Massy in August 2018. Hexcut and Theskyisthinaspaperhere will be supporting on this occasion for an incredible bill full of surprises.
Mutant-Thoughts are a rock trio based in Bristol, UK; comprised of Han Luis Cera (Synthesisers, Lead Vocals), Joshua Lennox (Bass Guitar, Backing Vocals) and Ollie Medlow (Drums). The band blends a-typical grooves with eerie synth textures and vocal harmony to create music full of brooding atmospheres and restless rhythmic energy. Mutant-Thoughts have gained esteem for their powerful and energetic live show, releasing a debut EP 'Is This Me?' in September 2017 to a packed house at local rock venue 'The Louisiana'. The eponymous title track was featured on BBC Introducing in the West on 17th August 2018. FFO: Radiohead, Yes, Pink Floyd, Talk Talk, Depeche Mode, How To Destroy Angels In August 2018, the band had a major breakthrough by getting the Grammy Winning producer Sylvia Massy (Tool, Johnny Cash, Prince, Red Hot Chilli Peppers, System of a Down, etc.) to record and produce a new EP, and put her expertise into Mutant-Thoughts’ atypical sound. The EP was mastered at Optimum Mastering Studios in Bristol, and the first Single, "Odd Boy" will be released on the 05/04/2019. The EP will be released on the 11th of May 2019, the same day of the release gig at Crofters Rights in Bristol.

Using live-coded generative and procedural composition techniques, theskyisthinaspaperhere combine ambient electronica with post-rock to create a dark, brooding melancholia. No pre-rendered backing tracks or visuals here: all performances are generated in real-time using custom made, Kinect-controlled software. Projected visuals allow the audience to see what is being coded alongside a constantly updating vector-based representation of the score. Retro-hacker imagery blurs the line between technology and the arcane; the interface becomes the aesthetic.
