Their name is rooted in classical Astrology | a sextile is an astrological aspect that is made when two planets or other celestial bodies are 60 degrees apart.
They released their second album last year | The band dropped ‘Albeit Living’ back in July 2017 with Louder Than War calling the album ‘Hypertense and hypnotic, dark and vitriolic, primitive and retro/modern. They sound like the underground in America should sound in 2017. Angry, fucked-up, yet with a plan…’
They favour a ‘2-minute-max’ punk rock ethos | Only three out of ten songs on razor-sharp LP ‘Albeit Living’ exceeded the three-minute mark.
They don’t mind going hungry | Whilst on tour with Soft Moon, Sextile prooved that an entire band can survive on $15 dollars a day.
They’re big fans of Brian Eno | Brady from the band claims that Brian Eno is the only person he follows on Twitter and that he implements Eno’s famous Oblique Strategies when recording with Sextile; “I’ll be like, ‘OK, guys, we’re only playing things in one note and everybody’s gotta play a different rhythm.’ That’s how we came up with that song ‘Sterilized.’”
Sextile bring their primitive post-punk from outer space to Think Tank on 20th January. Come along and you might just learn a thing or two about astrology while you’re there.
