As one of the fastest up and coming underground indie bands, eccentric London boy group BLACK MIDI headline Phase One on the day of the release of their debut album, Schlangenheim, via Rough Trade Records. After a practically silent social media presence, the south London foursome have built up quite a buzz around them in the solitary year they’ve bene in existence, following being featured in various media platform such as Pitchfork, NME and the Quietus. Mystery certainly adds a sense of desirability; it almost leads individuals to suggest conspiracies, when, realistically, what if they’re just four guys who love music and lose themselves while playing it? No fuss. You’ll have to make your own mind up about them. Same as it ever was.
