Preceding the debut album, NO CEREMONY/// announce much anticipated UK & European live dates, alongside an appearance at the iTunes Festival at the Roundhouse, playing with the legendary Pixies on September 25th. In celebration the band give away German producer Kiki's epic, eight and a half minute Balearic refix of recent single FEELSOLOW.
Their eponymous debut LP, released September 2nd on their own NOC/// label, is a daring, boldly singular record that pulls off the neat trick of pushing the parameters of pop music while also being brilliantly accessible, a gorgeous, haunting, and distinctive statement of intent which also happens to be filled with some of the most exquisite songs you're likely to hear in a while, with the sorts of melodies which will lodge firmly in your head for days.
The album and shows are bound to compel and intrigue, listen and watch on in wonder.
