AN EXPERIMENT ON A BIRD IN THE AIR PUMP - BUY A LIFE EP


After the dark and post-gothic-punk first EP, These Sins, the long and weirdly named An Experiment On A Bird In The Air Pump return with their second EP and second 7 inch. With a strange formation of three girls with two bass guitars and a standing up drum kit (and sometimes a guitar)they have performed with some other dark-noise London bands like Factory Floor.
In this new EP, their sound has mellowed slightly, maybe thanks to the Tim Burgess (The Charlatans) production and although the fury and the tension is still there, a rougher sound would suit them better, in my opinion. Anyway, they just returned from the USA where they have recorded their first album with no-one else than Mr Steve Albini, who would probably fix this for sure. This is also the first reference of their new label, also called Buy a Life. No idea if they are planning to put out just their records or also other bands' releases. Let's wait and see.

The name comes from a painting by Joseph Wright of Derby.
