Formes Short Info

Excellently described by Artrocker magazine as sounding ‘like a cross between an incredibly stoned Eddie Van Halen and a reinvigorated Sonic Youth’, Dewsbury collective FORMES have been a profilic member of the UK psych scene in recent years. Drawing inspiration from Hawkwind, Sleep, Ufomammut on to Deftones and Tool, Formes trade in heavy doom laden psychedelia with a distinctly metallic edge. The band’s self-recorded debut album ‘Dysphoria’ released later this year will take you to the farthest reaches of your mind, propelled by otherworldly sounds, obscure psychedelia, doom and sludge grooves as evident on album taster ‘Tumult’. The 7 minute slab of ungodly doom laden psych sees the band finally forging their personality after two years of experimentation and progression to a heavier sound since formation in 2012.

Winning support from BBC Introducing, BBC 6 Music and a wealth of positive blog notices, live the band have shared stages with many of Psychedelias biggest artists including Cosmic Dead, The Cult of Dom Keller, Plank and Mugstar. They play a coveted appearance at Liverpool International Festival of Psychedelia in September which saw the band earn rave live reviews from sites such as Drowned in Sound, Little Indie Blogs, Getintothis and Louder than War.
