Since forming in 2018, Brighton’s PROJECTOR have stubbornly forged their own artistic path. The three-piece have an experimental attitude to pop, whether it’s bringing industrial drum machines to hook laden alt-rock, or layering shimmering melodies over frenzied post-punk. It’s this confidence in craft that has seen the three-piece tour Europe with rock giants Cleopatrick, while simultaneously haunting the airwaves of BBC 6 Music with their otherworldliness.
It comes as no surprise that PROJECTOR’s self-produced debut album, ‘NOW WHEN WE TALK IT’S VIOLENCE’, documents the band’s notable, abstract individuality. Pulsations of artful disorder and raw aggression launch into atmospheric indie pop, and the strange brutalism of Joy Division gives way to a spectacular of hyperactive, Squid-flavoured rant-pop. Lucy, Edward and Callum’s ability to channel the intensity of their blistering live show is constant throughout.
