Since 2009 the Liverpool-based musical collective Ex-Easter Island Head have been composing and performing music for solid body electric guitar, percussion and other instruments.
Primarily performing as a quartet, the group create minimalistic avant-garde instrumentals via wonderfully unconventional methods. Incorporating multiple electric guitars augmented through mechanical preparations and extended techniques, they make musical works that explore group interplay, repetition and melodic invention through purposefully limited means. The group’s live performances have been praised for their hypnotic energy, compositional flair and unique spectacle, and following a number of appearances at Supersonic over the years, we can’t wait to welcome them back.
