If you haven’t seen them before, APTBS can only be described as a sensory overload, claiming every inch of space for their kaleidoscopic orgy of light.
Not sold yet? Then their latest record Transfixiation may get you there. The album deconstructs their sound to its core elements: mechanic rhythms that oscillate between cold and catchy beneath frenetic whims of cascading guitars and Ackermann’s Peter Murphy-esque intonations. Yet the spirit still remains the same – these songs are fractured and frenzied, demanding a physical space in which to twist, decay and unfurl.
