Today we introduce the heavy side of Soundcrane. Two artists who sculpt beauty from white noise and fuzz, and are best listened to at window-rattling volume.
No Anchor are a crushingly weighty trio of noise-makers from Brisbane, making intense drone/noise/rock music reminiscent of the Melvins and Fugazi. They’ve been around since 2008 and over their 3 releases have forged a reputation for awesome artwork and packaging, hugely epic recordings, and overwhelming live shows.
They expose some of their roots for us at Soundcrane, tipping their hats to Boris - the Japanese kings of avant-garde noise rock.
hazards of swimming naked are a very loud instrumental guitar group of rural beginnings. Ominous and lush with equal parts harmony and discord, their live performances surge from cinematic expanse to visceral intimacy.
They will attempt to unleash the reserved savagery and austere beauty of Kenji Kawai’s themes from Ghost in the Shell.
