"It’s dark and droning, but anyone will find it difficult to resist being pulled in by the twists and turns."
So what is a negative Pegasus? A horse with no horn?
"Melting Our Consciousness Into A Slippery Field Of Kaleidoscopic Vision"
This is the sound of a band in sonic meltdown, yet so impossibly in control as their sci-fi psychedelia hits the spot.
"Negative Pegasus are calling what they do repetition rock - and never has a style been so aptly named or clung to.."
'Floating Omen' is taken from the Brighton band's forthcoming debut album 'Looming' and will come out through Smalltown America Records this month.
"Axis Of declared their intention to play shows in each of Ireland's 32 counties."
The 4O5 on Looming's "characteristic sense of impending danger"
"I have a sneaking fondness for music that sounds like your [record] player is broken..."
""Pyschic Energy’s" Sabbath meets Refused squall all the way to "Visitations" apocalyptic, feedback soaked climax. "
'The band flitter between the sounds of the noisy, the kraut, the math, the psychedelic and even the drone to create something interesting, unusual, and unique'
''Looming' is a blend of hard and heavy electronica, stirred in with all manner of riffage. Just imagine Daft Punk with plenty more guitar' - 3/5
'A sonic blast of twin guitars interlocked in a clashing competition of dissonant riffing through a relentless 'Mo Tucker' pounding Groove'

'It's hard sometimes when you review so much to stay excited when you see a handful of genres and other band names on a press release, you become jaded pretty fast; thankfully Brighton trio Negative Pegasus cut through any and all crap with this fantastic single release of ballsy psych' - 10/13
'[LaFaro] unleash a troika of songs that few local bands have it in their arsenal to match. ‘The Ballad of Burnt Dave’, ‘Sucking Diesel’ and ‘Tupenny Nudger’ are delivered with the band’s typical acerbic abandon ensuring that a set which had threatened to veer of course remains a triumph.'

Negative Pegasus' 'Floating Omen' on Artrocker Radio
'Some art demands that you slow your brain down before you take it in, and though I don’t like doing what I am told, at all or ever, I will do it for 'Floating Omen'.'

'A mix of droning, grinding loops with wild, sheets of guitar feedback to create a malevolent stew of hard-psyche and woozy, drone-garage.'
'Industrial guitar squeals and some pained banshee howls coating cyclic, juddering grooves, the sound of rock n roll locked into an eternal 8 bar loop while the world outside collapses'
'Negative Pegasus' sound is a world away from their sunny, seaside home in Southern England... consisting of sheets of guitar feedback floating above primal, pounding drums.'
'The band are reportedly influenced by "the consciousness expanding New York repetition-rock of Oneida, the free-time whirl of Sightings, the shamanistic stomp of Knyfe Hyts and the joint-snapping mathematics of KILLL and Zu".'
'Consciousness expanding, hard-psych three-piece from Brighton, England. For fans of Oneida, Ex Models and Can.'

'A sensitive piano ballad full of yearning...like a smoothed-out Tom Waits song'
'Our Krypton Son are releasing a second single from their debut album and my, what a single it is.'
'‘Plutonium’...is a soft piano ballad that drifts between a hushed Jeff Tweedy-style delivery and a growly Dennis Wilson-esque ode, complete with warped ‘Pacific Ocean Blue’ style studio effects. It’s short and sweet but delivered perfectly.'
Our Krypton Son's latest single 'Plutonium' released today
'Blessed with a thundering, throbbing, heavy duty sound, typified by breakneck rhythms, clattering percussion and snarling vocals, Black, Magee, LaFaro and Lynn easily charm the pants off the Whelan’s massive, some of whom are too entranced by the racket to headbang along.'
'We are presented with an intimate, acoustic set. Chris McConaghy has a quiet and unassuming...his understated voice highlighting the melancholic nature of his songs.'

"There isn't a central concept lyrically on the album - memory, time, love, death, work, jealousy - the usual shit really." - Chris
