Dances / Curses - their lucky thirteenth record - is the work of six musicians at the peak of their considerable powers of intuition and inspiration. Constant motion is also something Hey Colossus know a little about, now into their eighteenth year as a band in a never-ending search for new trouble and new epiphanies. When this iteration of the band - which came together around the making of their last release, 2019’s Four Bibles, geographically spread between Somerset, Watford, London, Nottingham and Sheffield - first began work the chemistry apparently took care of itself, with their meetings at weekend rehearsals seeing them undergo a process less like jamming and more like a particularly intensive form of instant composition. Whatever sparks were spontaneously flying in these initial sessions, they gave rise to enough material to make Dances / Curses a double record, running the gamut from the rhythmically-driven, infectiously melodic songcraft of Donkey Jaw and Medal via the slow-burning atmospherics of U Cowboy to the mightily motorik-driven 15 minute travelogue that is A Trembling Rose, which takes in a plethora of unified headspaces in richly cinematic style. This indie exclusive comes pressed on limited edition coloured vinyl.
