Born out of Wellington's fertile creative music scene in 2009, the Spheres quickly gained a crowd of devotees, entranced by their sonically and visually ecstatic live shows. Their sound is an explosive brew concocted from the quicksilver synths of Mos Iocos, the intricate bass lines of EtonalE, the psychedelic biscuit tin guitar work of Baba Rossa and the the primitive, powerful stick work of new drummer, Woild Boin.
Like celestial sponges the Spheres' clonga sound draws on influences far and wide: kuduro, psychedelic primary school disco, fire music, kwaito, free improv, south pacific demolition, shangaan electro, zeuhl, mbalax, kosmische quiche, tarraxo, witch doctor haus, orgasmo brain rave, juke/footwork, polynesian no wave prog, quarr, costume rock, inner brain clap, funk puppetré...
The Spheres use homemade instruments like the biscuit tin guitar, electric bass carillon and sexomouse marimba to create their cosmic dancing sound.
This was recorded mid-summer 2015 at Pyramid Club in Wellington, New Zealand.
"When this quartet get their freak on they sound both futuristic and unsettlingly primal, their analogue adventurism as much a result of their homemade instruments like the "sexmouse marimba" as their influences (Fela Kuti, Konk, Shanagaan Electro, The BBC Radiophonic Workshop)" Uncut Magazine
