Sitting on an early morning train, staring at the countryside flashing past as you as you consider where your future lies, a soundtrack of Alvin Stardust on your headphones would be a terribly unsuitable choice.
That’s why Epic 45’s intricately crafted electronic beats and crystalline guitar lines are the natural choice for anyone wanting to stop the world for just a second and take a moment to appreciate the beauty all around them. The band still retain elements of their post-rock origins and an undeniable appreciation of instrumental legends Mogwai, but their sound has matured to boast fresh influences such as Hood, Fridge and Explosions In The Sky.
However, while the 'England Fallen Over EP' may well be fawned over by those searching for the next Four Tet, it is very much the unique sound of a young and rural Midlands watching birds rest of telegraph wires and staring at sepia photographs of power stations at sunset.
Acts with such grace and poise rarely come along, so make sure you grab a piece of Epic 45 while you still can.
