Of Empires Short Info

"It’s stomping, slow-motion riff-rock with snarling vocals and terrace-worthy choruses.” – The Guardian

"Entrancing alt-pop with a luscious, day-glo touch." – Clash Magazine

"Of Empires, all raucous riffs and sing-along choruses" - Gigslutz

Following a successful year of gigs and festivals in 2017 earning plaudits for their hypnotic live shows at Isle of Wight and Reading Festival, Brighton four piece ‘Of Empires’ are set to release double A-side singles, ‘Waist Up in Gold’ / ‘Gunslingers’ in 2018.

‘Waist Up in Gold’ leads with a middle-eastern psych hook, bolstered with a thunderous surf-rock pulse, themed by singer Jack Fletcher’s spiritual trip into a hyper-real wonderland.

With ‘Gunslingers’, the subject is war and the media coverage that defines them. It explores the chaos of foreign intervention and the gung-ho approach akin to a spaghetti western. On a sonic level, the band anchors its garage rock sound and psych-pop hooks with raw, live and low-fi grit.

‘Waist Up in Gold’ / ‘Gunslingers’ will be available via Idle Times Records February 2018.
