Evolving from its experimental roots into a new iteration as a duo duo, Battles make a remarkable return to form. Picking up the artistic thread where the band left off on Mirrored and Gloss Drop, the same wildly experimental, post-everything band are in the process of repositioning their core to New York and all its influences.
Their live shows in particular have been consistently highly reviewed. Check what the press had to say about their past gigs:
“All jerky rhythms and hall-of-mirrors guitars and, for the next hour, you’re under their spell.” – The Guardian
“It’s one of the most exciting live experiences you can ask for.” – DIY
“Were the world as perfect as this particular show, these pseudo-dance ditties would not only displace those alarmingly macabre ice cream van jingles nationwide, but discothèques up and down the country would be sweating it out ’til the earlier hours to such humid magnificence as Futura.” – Dots & Dashes
