The Noise Who Runs
Takes A Long Cold Look and Then The Kitchen Sink
Based somewhere between the UK and France, Ian Pickering and Felipe Goes bring the latest track from The Noise Who Runs. Since his days with The Sneaker Pimps and Front Line Assembly, Pickering has been working with his new band. The name is a direct translation of the phrase meaning to gossip in French. To be fair, people are talking already, with their sounds delivering on streaming sites and media sites alike. This quirky title, Takes A Long Cold Look and Then The Kitchen Sink, has been built from dreams of Syd Barret and Talking Heads. Ian Pickering, along with his Brazilian guitar player Felipe Goes, have reinvented this number originally from 1996.
Disparate rumbles creep into a guitar sound that pounds on thumping toms and a heavy bass kick. The music enters as vocals join the verse with moody and thought-inspiring words. A let-loose swagger bowls the syllables forward as keyboard sounds swing with swooping zaps and luminous pitch shifts. Melody keeps the music together through the ambient dream-score that clings to the progression. Walking with a slow and meaningful purpose, the music follows its own trail through the passing scenes. Human and touching, emotions are portrayed with inflections of sound that flicker between the structured song.

These Will Be Your Gods
Known for writing timeless trip-hop-inspired hits including Tesko Suicide, 6 Underground, and Spin Spin Sugar with his previous band, The Sneaker Pimps (eBay), Ian Pickering teams up with Brazilian/French guitar wizard Felipe Goes. The duo, known collectively as The Noise Who Runs, have just released These Will Be Your Gods EP. A four-track masterpiece, the quad of originals forms a clearly defined square in their circle of sound. The Noise Who Runs is a translation of the French phrase meaning Gossip, O bruit qui cour. This fourth EP release from the band since their conception in 2019, 3 years after British Northerner Ian Pickering emigrated to France, follows on from their highly sought-after High Time In Lo-Fi EP that landed last year. Written about the cult of popular personality that follows deceptive and narrow-minded fame campaigns, the act of putting the dimmest star on the highest plinth has a new detractor in this dark and passionate song.
Waves of distorted sound build an eerie and backwards atmosphere as cymbals and drums echo into forward motion. A deep and sensual bass then breaks through with strikes of glissando guitar. Pounding rhythm slowly creeps like meandering imaginations through darkly lit thought forms. Synths and cymbal fill the airy spaces as the lyrics bring a sense of ominous apprehension. Doomy and gloomy, the music lurches forward in pained melody as beauty spreads from the humanly awkward harmonies and key-changes. Subtle progression reveals spacious buzz-saw like keyboards that bring out twinkling aspects among the thump of heavy bass. As the track culminates, a force of multiple instruments rises from the core to flower like black roses.
