"Souvaris is a figure from previous times, rejuvenated by the power of
modern historical research and presented to you, the eager consumer, in order to display his relevance to modern living. Souvaris was a radical eighteenth century theologian wrongly denied his place in the annals of history purely by dint of his illiteracy and occasional "anti-social" behaviour. His queenly antics, previously frowned on by academic circles, take on a new light in modern circumstances. Watch! as he eloquently spouts forth a torrent, nay a blitz of enlightening and empowering diatribes! Tempered and caged only by his brutish keepers, who wield deathsticks of sound that seek to drown his tortured genius in textured layers of rhythmic drone and facile melody."
souvaris are a 6 piece instrumental collective exploring tone, melody, rhythm and noise in vast and intricately constructed arrangements designed to envelop and overwhelm the listener. following a string of successful gigs and john peel airplay last year, this summer sees a host of new shows in support of their long awaited debut ep due on telesphere recordings at the end of july. file alongside the likes of godspeed you black emperor!, slint, my bloody valentine, labradford, sonic youth, low and mogwai, but be mindful of their insistence at pushing the boundaries of the traditional ‘song’ definition, length and structure beyond anything heard before.
