Up the Down Escalator

Straight outta Edinburgh, Scottland come Edinburgh School for the Deaf. Their moody, fuzzed out maelstrom on the A-side to their virtual single is a sound not unfamiliar to their geography, and then the virtual B-side figuratively flips that sound on its ear getting introspective, delicate and quiet (also not unfamiliar to their geography). The only complaint I have about this record is that it ain’t  a physical record. It’s part of Bubblegum Records For Singles Project which limits each single to 200 downloads. I’ll take a download but I’ll still pine for a 45 that I can plop on a turntable and crank  up.

Here’s the A-Side Orpheus Descending:

And the B-Side Orpheus Ascending:

Edinburgh School for the Deaf’s debut long player New Youth Bible is due 13th June. In the meantime head over to Bubblegum Records to buy a download of this virtual single.
