Glaswegian instrumentalists Errors are currently signed to Mogwai‘s Rock Action label and have the same incredible ability to paint pictures in sound without words. The band will be visiting Berlin and Myslowice next month. Tour details and ticket information below.
Bear witness, for this is the sound of the synthetic made flesh, the biologically programmed amalgamation of man and machine. What Errors urge out of their glacial metal boxes – with the help of wood and string contraptions – is so human you can almost feel the existential strain tearing at arterial structures.
In locating their enticing sonic domain, they followed no conscious blueprints, instead allowing ideas to filter through from their surroundings.
“We are all into similar stuff. As for the post-rock thing, it comes as a result of living in Glasgow, and being surrounded by bands that fall into that criterion. We have probably been most influenced by the music of Pavement, Sonic Youth, Shellac, Kraftwerk and New Order.”
And it is all in there, glistening beneath the surface, yet moulded into something they indisputably have the right to call their own. As with much of Glasgow’s current crop of sonically dissimilar bands, Errors have been almost subconsciously predisposed to dismiss mono-stylistics by attending club nights like Optimo or any number of Art School events. The sense of community is contagious in the city, with all manner of individuals being exposed to wildly varying permutations of musical information that, by extension, then feed into the databanks of the future creators and manipulators.
Becoming a functioning part of that community was the obvious next step, and it is indeed through the live forum that Errors have since made their name.
