Inspired by the elements as much as by modern music SuplexTheKid are an enigmatic proposition. Apparently named after an ingenious wrestling move their music sneaks up and traps you with similar efficiency. The phrase from a “whisper to a roar” goes some of the way to describing their shifts from chiming crystalline guitar motifs to face melting howls of primal feedback. This spacious and echoing music is vocal less and none the worse for it.

Their bio cites Explosions in the Sky as their favourite band and the influences are apparent. However this does not do full justice to the range of sonic assaults aimed at the listener. At times the music is challenging, such as on ‘It’s About Time You Changed’, but this is time well invested in this reviewer’s opinion.

Whilst I wouldn’t recommend this to anyone of a sensitive disposition, or recovering from open heart surgery, I would strongly recommend this soundscape mini album to fans of Mogwai and the lengthy guitar climax. Although only a very small Indie release they are apparently recording their follow up album already so it may only be a matter of time before you have been Suplexed too.

Utilising Pianos, Violin bows, reverb, delay and distortion for the cinematic soundscapes SuplexTheKid are taking ownership of epic sound of imaginative recordings. Named after an ingenious wrestling move its only a matter of time before their music will have “suplexed you”.
