Burning Alms

Biography

Formed during 2012 around the long-running musical partnership of guitarist/vocalist John Biggs and drummer Tom Whitfield (both formerly of Calories & Distophia), the scope of Burning Alms quickly outgrew that of their previous projects. “In Sequence”, the eagerly-awaited debut album from Burning Alms. Recorded with producer and multi-instrumentalist Dom James. Noisy pop nuggets rub shoulders with yearning acoustic ballads, bookended by droning jazz-tinged instrumentals and found-sound vignettes, which showcase the band’s more experimental tendencies.
