The Birmingham UK based prog-rock trio Oktopus have released their debut album Worlds Apart — it is available for digital download now.
When we saw the technically brash and jazzy/sexy band play live at HRH PROG this month we were reminded of the seventies folk-proggers Spirogyra…
We had a listen to ‘Eyes Open‘ from Worlds Apart —
After “Discord – Approach” we flee into “Eyes Open” with its diagonal fractals and those ultra-squeezed guitars.
The ‘Sting-like’ voice is actually fairly sweet, bright and jolly as it climbs and dips…
While the guitars continue to shine in their honeydew percolations.
This radiates glowlight satisfaction.
