Feature: Five things you gotta’ know about…Sextile

08/01/2018

There’s no time like the present to get to know L.A punks Sextile who crash land at Think Tank on 20th January…

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.
