Alright The Captain

Powered by Audioscrobbler™ALRIGHT THE CAPTAIN

Masterfully combining virtuosic instrumentation with unabashed musical experimentation, Derby-based trio ATC have all but effortlessly established themselves as a sonic force to be reckoned with, thanks to their uniquely imaginative brand of math-rock. Their sprawling and varied career has seen them sharing stages with post-rock luminaries including Mono, toe, 65daysofstatic, Pelican, Tera Melos, ASIWYFA, Maybeshewill, Adebisi Shank, This Will Destroy You, ZU, Holy Fuck and many more.

With the highly-anticipated follow-up to their critically devoured debut, SNIB, set for release early in 2015, the band’s jazz-inflected craft is brilliantly propelled by an unrestrained restless energy and bold sense of boundlessness that recognises zero confines. Melding intricate fretboard tangents with summoning rhythms, noise rock throwdowns with delicate, effects-laden passages and painstaking instrumental majesty with an intent-drenched zeal, the band’s music evokes everyone from Don Caballero, Giraffes? Giraffes! and Slint to Tera Melos, June of 44 and toe. Listen.

“An unabashed love for musical adventure, Alright the Captain have produced a chaotically punchy slice of perfection in this stunning release." – 9/10 – Tasty

"Although there are a lot of bands around at the moment making math-rock, there aren't many who are doing it like this." – 9/10 - The 405

"It's a pretty snarling beast that has no time to waste proving itself to any ears not immediatley in-tune with its take no prisoners musical approach. So whether you take it or leave it, its pretty difficult to ignore it" - Rocksound

"The trio offers up a relentless slice of math-core, filled with all the typical musical breakdowns, time signature massacres and outer space-size riffs you would expect of the genre. The band keep this all up without the need for a vocalist, whether this is a stylistic choice or not being able to find a vocalist mentally distressed enough to sing along is up for debate" - Goldflake paint

"Alright The Captain are lords of the slippery ear worm, just when you think you've caught hold of the idea, they're onto the next one" - One Beat

"If you like math rock with dirty ass bass, guitars that get right up in your grill & beats that only Ian Curtis could get away with dancing to, then ATC are going to tick ALL the boxes for you. Live they are without doubt one of the most thrilling prospects out there, positively fizzing with energy and intent" - Echoes and Dust
