Bombnivores are Jamie Larade (drums, samples, bass) & Sheldon Kelly
(vocals, keys, bass.) They are childhood friends from Nova Scotia who
began collaborating from a shared love
of music and the obscuring of it's boundaries. Starting off in 2013,
their sound was eclectic & sample-based. They became focused on
fusing electronic with acoustic.
Their new album 'In Tension'
avoids genres while embracing the progressive experimentation &
harmony of their many influences (Radiohead, Bjork, Broken Social Scene,
Flying Lotus, Half Moon Run, The Meters, Machinedrum, Patrick Watson...
the list goes on...)
For all the music that has affected them
over the years, they seek to pay homage via creation with an album that
sways like a mixtape, blurring lines between IDM & post-rock,
between the melodic & the abstract, between the groove & the
Artistic ascension is key and 'In Tension' is a wave to be heard from these east coast shores.
