Dialects

Dialects from Glasgow in Scotland is the maths-rock quartet of Conor Anderson (Guitar), Steven Gillies (Guitar), Ali Walker (Bass) and Jonny Gormley (Drums).

Dialects - Maths-rock from Scotland

Dialects

The industrial excavations of Dialects soon have you looking at the walls to ensure it isn’t they that are furiously cascading around your head. When maths rock comes right, it is a joy to behold, rarely it does, though in the hands of the quartet the carefully constructed pyramids are felled in measured temperament leaving the audience smitten by the smote.

Cleavers of grinding guitar axe their way through the cortex like a finely tuned sawmill at peak production. Dialects leave the audience with a sense of perfectly articulated jaw as the jangles of angles reverberate around the head.

Pugilistic percussion is swathed in felts of beguiling bass to cleft a hidden southpaw right-hand upper-cut to the senses as the guitars serve as a valedictory salute to the unconscious.

Dialects deliver an uncompromising flow of precise compositions that take no prisoners along their path. Catch them in the wrong moment and it will discombobulate. When in the right mindset this is music which confabulates and an absolute joy.

I raise my hat to Dialects for not being afraid to challenge the listener and as importantly for putting ‘pure maths’ into maths-rock.
