Swiss trio Coilguns are set to release their debut album “Commuters” on February 22nd (GAS) and 25th (rest of Europe) CD & digital formats; and March 15th (GAS) / 18th (rest of Europe) vinyl. The LP comes with silk-screened cover artwork + sticker.”
Commuters” was entirely recorded live, every song in one take. The incorporation of synths and more guitar and bass loops has added more depth to their original punky yet heavy sound. Some tracks on the album are featuring up to 5 guitar players at the same time. No overdubs or edits have been made on this record except for the vocals.
Coilguns have been pushing their boundaries to find a unique and most certainly odd sound, and by simplifying their songwriting, they’ve intensified and emphasized their heavyness.
