…towering walls of sound, vast brooding landscapes and a mesmerising tapestry of bold genre-defiance.
Framed by towering walls of sound, vast brooding landscapes and a mesmerising tapestry of bold genre-defiance, ‘Charge Group’ is a kaleidescopic opus of existential desperation, hopeful wide-eyed dreams and post-apocalyptic warning.
Self-recorded in an old church and then self-released. Charge Group’s always emotional, audacious and awe-inspiring music has resonated strongly with everyone at Hobbledehoy since the pre-debut release live videos we watched over and over again. We’re all very proud to be a part of this one.
‘Charge Group’ – the long-awaited second album from Sydney’s cinematic art-rock antiheroes. The band have spawned a sonic feast of epic proportions that the 2008 acclaimed debut ‘Escaping Mankind’ hinted at, and have proven it’s entirely possible to evoke the chaotic splendour of early Velvets, the kinetic power of Battles and the heady symphonic majesty of Sigur Rós all at once.
Originally released in 2012 by Blackman’s own label ‘Microphone & Loudspeaker’. Now in 2019, in collaboration together Hobbledehoy have released this digitally too.
