POZI

(United Kingdom)


Gigs

Venue
Date / Time
7:30pm Thursday

Signed to Prah, Pozi come steeped in the lineage of the very best weirdo British indie pop. The trio of drummer/vocalist Toby Burroughs, violinist/vocalist Rosa Brook and bassist/vocalist Tom Jones have a skittish, restless energy.

Despite drawing on influences such as Devo, Wire and Television, there are no guitars on their critically acclaimed debut album PZ1and 2 follow up EP’s ’176 and ‘Typing’ and the space afforded by the lack of this potentially domineering component is refreshing. Instead, there’s Brook’s Siouxsie esq vocals and violin that by turn swells and stresses, either buoying proceedings along or collapsing them into discord. Jones’ rough, scruffy basslines hold each song tightly together as all great bassists should do. Then there’s Burroughs’ sparsely-filled but frantically driven rhythmic repetition and his capital city yelp, words tumbling out as though desperately trying to get out of the way of the ones behind.
