about

Recorded (mostly) live over 2 days of recording. Engineered, mixed and mastered by Dan Beesley & John Simm (Cleft).

Here's what some really nice people have said about our album:

"Hoarding more intricacies than a warship replica made out of toothpicks and about as subtle as a stag do t-shirt, BOSH! cuts out the ambiguity of modern music so as to plug away at something a bit more primordial." - notedmusic.co.uk

"...there’s just more of everything, more epic riffs, more apocalyptic drum fills, more vertigo-inducing changes of pace." - yeahbuddyblog.weebly.com

"This album is challenging, thoughtful, provoking, experimental, catchy as fuck, but most of all it’s the fact you can tell they have had loads of fun creating BOSH!, and that’s what really matters." - Nick Duke, Trojanhorse & Sloucher.org

"...the whole record captures Cleft perfectly. A near mirror image to their live performance, it captures the tightness between John and Dan, the puzzling nature of it all in a ‘how do they do it?‘ kinda way, and just how rad the tunes are." - Andy Hughes, BirthdayCakeForBreakfast.wordpress.com

"Combining heavy deep-toned guitar slaps (accompanied by the synchronized pounding of the drums) and soft, technically proficient interludes, the album never ceases to impress." - math-rock.net

"Each song is like a blindfolded journey in a brakeless car around a mountain-side road." - Joseph Viney, peterguy.merseyblogs.co.uk

"This progressive bromance mix adventurous rhythms, straight-up riffage, brains and melody into a satisfying cocktail that eschews the migraine-inducing of the more technical-oriented end of the spectrum in favour of some accessible, yet challenging, fun." - alreadyheard.com
