London based four-piece Ice Baths (Jack, Ed, Tom & Alex) recently released their self titled debut album & follow up EP ‘Decadent Sprinter’ on Blank Editions, joining the Hackney based labels already heavyweight roster including Thurston Moore, Housewives, Douglas Hart (Jesus & Mary Chain), Ben Vince & more.
Over the last few years Ice Baths have shared stages with the likes of Crack Cloud, H-Grimace, Circuit Breaker, HMLTD, Autobahn, Ulrika Spacek, Phobophobes, Drahla & more.
Sonically, Ice Baths take influence from cult heroes such as Swell Maps, Television Personalities, This Heat & US Maple – all restless energy and angled aggression which manifests live into droning bowed guitars and frenetic shifts in mood and dynamic.
Mighty Lord Deathman
In the intersection between DJ Assault and The Caretaker, where the clattering rhythms of Gqom meet the bangs and scrapes of UK industrial, we find Mighty Lord Deathman. Leading his flotilla of rusty rhythm machines, MLD's music brings to mind everything from Fela Kuti to Patrick Cowley; from the mind warping hyper-speed of Egyptian Electro Chaabi to the sci-fi throb of prime John Carpenter soundtracks.
