STA is now Ten Years Old

Rock Sound Magazine And So I Watch You From Afar's Debut

'There's always a tubby fucker of a riff lurking on the horizon to ensure things come back to life with another reassuring thunk' - 8/10

Just when you thought you couldn't give a fig for yet more instrumental post-rock, along come these upstarts to clout you upside the head for taking your eye of the ball. Kissing cousins To Monument From Masses, ASIWYFA deal in a similar type of dynamic crashes, danceable rhythms and Dave Knudson guitar squiggle, even giving their songs similarly state-smashing titles to again raise the question of just how political you can really be while barely uttering a word. True to form, the band occasionally lose themselves amidst untold minutes of panoramic fartarsery, but there's always a tubby fucker of a riff lurking on the horizon to ensure things come back to life with another reassuring thunk.

For fans of: From Monument To Masses, Pelican, Russian Circles

8/10
