Since forming just over a year ago, black midi -- Geordie Greep (vocals/guitar), Cameron Picton (bass/vocals), Matt Kelvin (guitar/vocals) and Morgan Simpson (drums) -- have quickly cemented their reputation as one of the hottest new underground bands, following a string of sold-out UK live dates and surprise shows punctuated by constantly shifting sets and blistering musicianship. Recently, the band played their first North American live shows, being named a standout act at SXSW and selling out their first two shows in New York. “Crow’s Perch” will be the follow-up to black midi’s “eerily precise and austere” (Pitchfork) “Speedway” single. The “Speedway” single was accompanied by an EP of remixes by Proc Fiskal, Kwake Bass, and Blanck Mass. The 300 copies of their first-ever single, “bmbmbm,” released on Dan Carey’s label, Speedy Wunderground, sold out instantly and had to be re-pressed within the first week. black midi will return stateside this July to play the Bowery Ballroom in New York, the Pitchfork Music Festival in Chicago, and Minneapolis. PRESS: "Almost every song Black Midi performs unfolds in surprising ways, one riff quickly switching to another, one mellow passage blooming into caustic screams and dissonant guitars, songs constantly collapsing in on themselves and being born again." - Stereogum, “Band To Watch” "Black Midi are less interested in proving themselves the future of indie rock than in imagining indie rock from the future" - Pitchfork “They were one of the most talked about groups at SXSW this year, and for good reason—Black Midi laid waste to every stage they stepped onto and damn near burned the city to the ground.” - Paste, “The 20 Best Acts We Saw at SXSW 2019” “[black midi]’s twisted, slow-burn arrangements, noisy spasms of guitar and panicked vocals conjured visions straight out of a horror movie…” - Chicago Tribune, “12 best up-and-coming bands and artists at SXSW” “They were one of the most talked about groups at SXSW this year, and for good reason—Black Midi laid waste to every stage they stepped onto and damn near burned the city to the ground.” - Paste, “The 20 Best Acts We Saw at SXSW 2019” “[black midi]’s twisted, slow-burn arrangements, noisy spasms of guitar and panicked vocals conjured visions straight out of a horror movie…” - Chicago Tribune, “12 best up-and-coming bands and artists at SXSW”
