Sets Shares New Album 'In Memory'

Chris Cudby / Friday 21st January, 2022 11:30AM

The heavy-hitting post-punk project of Brandon Sayring (the oft-anonymous mastermind behind countless crucial local acts), a entire new album from Sets has emerged today via Papaiti Records. A solemn yet sonically energising reflection on and document of Whanganui's thriving music community in the early '10s, In Memory "charts a path through a dark time" following the sudden passing of Alan Robert Cameron aka ALC5, multi-talented co-runner of massively influential DIY venue The Eye of Night (who inspired the founding of Sayring's venue ARC Theatre). Recently rediscovered on tapes dating back to 2010, the seven track collection confronts raw emotion with unflinching focus, emitting otherworldly qualities that indeed recall the spirit of Aotearoa pioneers Children's Hour or Nocturnal Projections.

"It was during a time of mental healing. A way to cope with some pretty traumatic stuff that I didn't know how else to deal with. It didn't feel right to do anything with it for a long time." - Sets

'In Memory' is out now on major streaming services via Papaiti Records.
