David Preston, Kevin Glasgow & Laurie Lowe are three of London's most creative young instrumentalists. Their music is a mash-up of relentless rhythmic energy, harmonic dystopia, and virtuosic improvisations. Expanding the format of the guitar trio with intricate and unique compositions, they draw influence from an expansive array of styles, whilst maintaining a focused original sound. Set to release their debut album on the internationally acclaimed Whirlwind Recordings, they will embark on an extensive UK tour early 2016.
