SOBRIQUET release visualiser with lyrics for track ‘The Tower’

From the new EP


“Unpredictable, technical, and brilliantly melodramatic.” 

“Another immensely promising release from SOBRIQUET.” 

“There are no limits for what this band could aspire to accomplish.”

Sheffield-based experimental post-hardcore band Sobriquet have released a visualiser with lyrics for track ‘The Tower’, taken from their new EP ‘Apotheosis’ which is out now (self-release).

“We really struggled to settle on a final track for the EP. We had the bones of ‘The Tower’ fairly early on during the writing process but could never find the right way to finish it. We hope that anxiety and febrile atmosphere is reflected in the song. Case in point, the verse lyrics and vocals were completely rewritten ten minutes before we recorded them, and this was another point where we tried to experiment more, using vocoders and samples.” says vocalist Ludovico Fahey of the track.

“’The Tower’ represents the coming together of the narrative threads of the EP, so it made sense to collage the previous videos together. The song itself is very disorienting, which we tried to match in the visuals,” adds guitarist Tom Green-Morgan who created the visualiser.

A visceral marriage of experimental hardcore, choral vocals, and moody atmospherics, Sobriquet’s new EP ‘Apotheosis’, out now, is the band’s defining statement so far, and one that proves them impossible to categorise. The EP sets out the band’s cohesive aesthetic vision, rooted in liturgical imagery, cult film, and late 90s hardcore.

Recorded with Lewis Johns at The Ranch, Southampton, ‘Apotheosis’ tells stories centered around the theme of metamorphosis and auto-evolution. The journey begins with the protagonist’s discovery of the self, then follows a downward spiral of doubt and frustration. Emerging out of this sea of despair, the protagonist breaks out of their self-imposed cocoon with a newfound passion and rage in the form of self-love, before finally culminating in ultimate enlightenment and ego death as they ascend to find their answer to their reason for living.

“We’re extremely grateful for the warm reception that ‘Apotheosis’ has received since its release earlier this month, and we look forward to sharing these songs on tour in the coming months”  reflets Fahey. “It feels to us like people have really made a connection with the songs on this EP in a way we haven’t felt before, so the prospect of sharing that connection face-to-face at these upcoming shows is very exciting for us.”
