First Move Share Single 'Compromise' + Touring NZ In August

Friday 19th July, 2019 9:06AM

Te Papaioea / Palmerston North noise-rock trio First Move have dropped 'Compromise', the latest teaser from their upcoming Provincial Blight EP, which promises to deliver "four songs for the Antipodean winter." The slow-burning 'Compromise' follows their brooding recent track 'One Hundred Percent' (featured on our July playlist), with vocalist H. Lilley dispensing world-weary and incisive proclamations over slow motion distorted guitars and pounding drums, recalling at moments the uncompromising sonics of NZ drone-masters Bailterspace. First Move will be hammering eardrums at a solid number of live shows in the near future, playing alongside visiting Melbourne post-punks Bench Press, Wax Chattels frontman Peter Ruddell's new solo project Sulfate, at Tauranga's huge Loserpalooza festival, and at their own headline dates below...
