New Discovery: Beaten By Them, People Start Listening EP out 11/22
Beaten By Them is an art rock band - at least that's what they sound like to me - with similarities to American Analog Set, but a bit more abstract. One thing they do well is to build their sound... on this four-song EP, People Start Listening, the fourth track "It Can Take You Higher" turns into something you might expect from Mogwai.
For a short EP, they cover a good bit of territory in terms of sound levels and tempo - this is worth your time to check it out.
Here's a video about the making of their most recent album, Invisible Origins. There aren't any videos from the current EP, but they are working on a full album so hopefully more soon.
Check out the EP here:
And here's a free download of "Nusla Nif" from Invisible Origins:
