We’re very excited to present ‘Broadcast History’, the first taste of the debut self-titled EP from atmospheric rock trio AWMA. The track prowls relentlessly around a circular guitar refrain, gradually building in intensity as Jason Lakis’s expansive guitar effects and Conor Devlin’s incantatory vocal colour the stereo field with portent. AWMA take the space, weight and atmosphere of their previous incarnation Half Film, and inject instrumental details and a gentle shift in tempo from their slowcore origins.
The band dynamic that Conor and Eimer Devlin ([the] caseworker) and Jason Lakis (The Red Thread, Mist and Mast) have cultivated over the years of touring and playing together has been elegantly renewed on their self-titled EP. This melodically charged music, akin to the early pastoral side of Pink Floyd, exudes intensity and emotional resonance.
‘Broadcast History’ is available for streaming now via SoundCloud. AWMA’s self-titled EP sees release on the 14th of October 2015.
