Armchair Committee: Imola

Armchair Committee are a rock trio from Bristol. Taking cues from the early Nineties grunge, they go for a loud and dirty sound in the lead single Boxcutter, a track form their forthcoming debut EP Imola. Don't let that fool you. They also have surprisingly gentle song about a pain killer, Codeine (A Plan of Sorts). The instrumental To Arms stands out with a great guitar vignette played over an ice dry drum beat. The album closes with Imola, a post-rock song that can go places when played live.

Armchair Committee:
Tom Hackwell: guitar, vocals
Dave Larkin: bass, vocals
Dan Frost: drums, vocals
