The Physics House Band are Sam Organ (guitar/keys), Adam Hutchison (bass/keys), Dave Morgan (drums) and Miles Spilsbury (saxophone/keys). The four create avant-garde compositions that capture everything from jazz to prog to psych to doom-metal, all combined together with a furious energy transcending to their mind-bending live shows. Their recently completed third record explores further into the expanses of intense darkness and light. Soft ambient synths explode into chaotic battles between angular guitars and saxophones. The gentle moments are softer, the intense moments more visceral than ever. This is a band that has to be experienced live.
The bulk of this record was written over a two week period in a secluded farmhouse turned studio on Start Point, a Devonshire headland located between the English channel and the Celtic Sea. Ideas were stripped back and rebuilt relentlessly over the fortnight until pieces emerged, becoming more chaotic and dense as the cabin fever drew ever closer. This record is a reflection of that time - the madness that comes from such an insular experience, but also the peace and gentleness of being removed from the constant overstimulation of the city.
The Physics House Band have toured performed notable shows with supported the likes of Alt-J, Omar Rodriguez-Lopez, Django Django, Tera Melos, LITE, Jaga Jazzist and gained major support from BBC Radio 6 Music, NPR, Anthony Fantano / The Needle Drop, The Guardian, The Independent, The Quietus + more
