Final Coil Short Info

Combining crushing riffs with ethereal, post-rock soundscapes, Final Coil offer up a quintessentially English take on alternative rock. Formed by frontman Phil Stiles, the Leicester-based band went through the usual trials and tribulations of finding a stable line-up with the one constant being lead guitarist Richard Awdry.

Initially rooted in the explosive experimentation of the US underground scene, early Final Coil shows were noisy, messy affairs with broken equipment scattered across the stage and waves of arcing feedback left echoing around dark venues with sticky floors. With time, the band evolved to take a more nuanced approach, weaving stately, Gilmour-esque solos into the dense, metallic riffs and experimenting with layers of vocal harmonies reminiscent of Alice in Chains and Anathema.

It was this more-evolved musical approach that attracted Jola Stiles; a Polish-born bassist with a jazz background, enabling the band to develop their sound yet further. With Jola in place, Final Coil recorded an acoustic EP that added flute, waves of synth and delicate piano to the mix. A major shift in the band’s sound, the Somnambulant EP demonstrated a newfound maturity of expression although live shows remained Adrenalin-soaked examples of pure-rock fury.
