"Blasts of distorted guitar, off-tuned analog keyboards and barreling drums mixed with psychedelic soundscapes and occasional disorientation are hallmarks of the Birmingham, England-based group's sound. As the New York Times put it, 'Broadcast's songs are full of creaks, rumbles, saw-toothed distortion and untamed feedback. Each intrusion (is) plotted, and they let the disruption build and sometimes take over a song in a billowing crescendo. Within the tick-tock riffs and pop melodies, the noise seems to break out like steam through volcanic fissures.' In anticipation of their 2010 full length, this EP is a collaboration between Trish Keenan (vocals), James Cargill (Bass, Keyboards, Atmospherics and Production) and long time friend of the band - Julian House, co-founder of the enigmatic UK indie label Ghost Box Music. House, a visual artist as well as musician and producer created Ghost Box Music and his band The Focus Group in order to release the records and create album art he and his friends love - and as he says, 'the purpose of (Ghost Box Music and The Focus Group) was to create not just a record label, but an imaginary world.'"
