WARM DIGITS RECENTLY SIGNED TO MEMPHIS INDUSTRIES AND ANNOUNCED FIRST SINGLE “END TIMES (FEATURING FIELD MUSIC)”
BOOK WARM DIGITS
WARM DIGITS aka Newcastle based Andrew Hodson and Steve Jefferis.
A new album, loosely themed around a present-day that teeters
between celebration and devastation, is in the works for 2017.
WARM DIGITS are the Newcastle-upon-Tyne duo that, in the
words of legendary DJ/producer Andrew Weatherall, create
“Machine funk kraut-a-delia – it’s rather lovely!”
Warm Digits’ brew of live drums, guitar and electronics betray
a love of Neu!, Kraftwerk, Giorgio Moroder, My Bloody Valentine and Boards Of
Canada. Motorik percussion, electronic basslines, Keith Levene-style guitar chops and squelchy
analogue warmth are accompanied by live visuals in performances that have graced the Psych Fests of both London and Liverpool, seen them support the likes of Goblin, Modeselektor, ESG, St. Etienne, Moon Duo and many more, toured the UK with British Sea Power and blown the audience away at Supersonic and many
other festivals. Their blistering live sets of “krautophonic blizzard-wave” have to be seen to be believed.
For their new recordings, the band have sharpened up all the elements of their sound for a set of crisp, propulsive and melodically rich songs, and for the first time on selected songs have collaborated with some of their favourite vocalists: Peter Brewis
of Field Music, Sarah Cracknell of Saint Etienne, Devon Sproule, and Mia La Metta of Beards.
Warm Digits will be performing alongside Butthole Surfers, The Residents, Michael Rotherand More at the Safe As Milk Festival April 21-23. They will also be performing the soundtrack (originally commissioned by Saint Etienne’s Bob Stanley) to First World War documentary “Asunder”at the Barbican in London on 12 February, alongside Field Music.
