Ahead of their debut EP, ‘Songs in the Key of O’, For Breakfast release Nardis.
Once upon a time in the west, six comrades and a flute sat down to construct something de-constructed. Labouring at a time where congregated numbers were indeed, merely a number and not some universal threat, this bunch banded together to build bridges between the personal and timelessness; together, we enter the present stage of Nardis.
In its original form, ‘Nardis’ was a jazz masterpiece known to have passed through the inspired ranks of Miles Davis, Cannonball Adderley and Bill Evans. Currently, like an ambient apparition of the Earth Division kind, it finds itself split between the collective spirits of North-London newcomers For Breakfast- a captivatingly unsettling trance which sets the mark for any future renditions to follow.
For Breakfast’s ‘Nardis’ is a cross-breed beast with eyes as big as it’s ambition allows, and a howl fit for progressive re-interpretation. No stranger to the bleakly-surreal, it roams planes of field recordings in search of one sound and returns with a dozen. Rearing its ever-rotating head to shine beady spotlight on influences, crawling in the under bellied pits of spaghetti-western post-rock, it reels off rambled idiosyncrasies like stunned Birdsong complete with organ flight.
This may not be an original but it is without a doubt, of no previous kind.
