Self Love's amazing debut album, «no», came out at the end of October, yet only now have we been able to fix some kind of «release» gig. I know, right?
Now split between Cambridge and Nottingham, Self Love are a willowy thrash bass & drums duo who mix breakneck beats, fuzzed-out riffs, and deadpan, self-deprecating vocals to thrilling effect. No guitar, no middle 8s, and barely a tune that lasts over 2 minutes. Debut tape, «no», released in Oct '17, is a swift dive into an oddly diverse, self-contained musical world made with the simplest of components. It’s an essential slice of sub-urban English D.I.Y., applying 21st century self-reflection to the finest traditions of Messthetics-esque self-adventure.
Support from poly-influential bloop raconteur Pete Um, wholesome lo-fi clatterers General Waste, and jazzy crooners Ugly.
