SPECIMENS - Social Gatherings
SPECIMENS is the brainchild of Alex Ives, whose previous incarnation Time Brings Age had a release on Dog Knights Productions featuring an excellent remix by the mysterious Greg RoM aka Greg Less. Yes, that is your truly.
SPECIMENS is a slightly more abstract affair, with vocals, drums, strings and electronics all weaving their way around each other in a strangely euphoric way. 'Social Gatherings' reminds me of a fuzzy, more distorted UK version of I Break Horses, and the two share lyrical themes judging by Alex's Time Brings Age work.
Head over to the SPECIMENS Bandcamp where you can download the 'State of Being Assembled' EP for free. Click here to go there and do that.
