The two instrumental trios, a-tota- so from the UK and Six Hands from Belgium, combine musical-forces validating their shared love of all things instrumental through their forthcoming split EP ‘Bromance’.
Being released as a 10” record, ‘Bromance’ appeases the vinyl-lovers and fans alike, with both sides including new materials and a cover of the other band’s song and is now available for pre-order from:
Six Hands an instrumental three-piece dancing on cheerful tunes and grinding guitars. Light-footed, twinkly guitars intertwine with funky baselines and incisive drums… sometimes playful, at times harsh, always Six Hands.
After their full-length album ‘JXTA’, the band has played extensively, including highlights as Pukkelpop Festival, Rock Herk and another UK tour with a-tota-so, prompting the creation of ‘Bromance’.
Toon of Six Hands say “It’s so sweet to finally affirm our shared band experiences in a physical record. We had a blast working out a rendition of our mates song and arereally looking forward to hitting the road together again.”
a-tota-so are a noisy instrumental math/grunge band with a big sound that encapsulates tender quiet moments along with big heavy riffs, this new release captures their live sound perfectly
a-tota-so are making their mark on the UK math-rock and post-rock scene having played at ArcTanGent festival ahead of the release of their self-titled full-length album. Forthcoming shows include Hanwell Hootie Festival and Portals.
Marty Toner of a-tota-so says, “We’ve known the six hands lads for a long time now so it’s nice to finally release something together especially since we’ve previously toured a lot together”
The two instrumental trios now validate their shared love through this new split 10″ record. Both sides include new material and a cover of the other bands song.
Six Hands and a-tota-so hit the road for a ‘Bromance’ European tour across the UK and Europe. With the hype being created for both acts and the anticipation of this forthcoming EP, shows are expected to sell out quickly.
