black midi: Brevity is underrated

"Marvellously-named guitarist and vocalist Geordie Greep [is] a soft-spoken 21-year-old who talks while barely moving his lips, dresses offstage like Tony Soprano’s accountant (ie, suited-and-booted ​’90s sharp), and can sing like a man possessed by a menagerie of personalities. Like the band, he contains multitudes" - The Face interview with black midi reads. Their new album 'Cavalcade' is out next week - "this is the eight-songs-wide, full-fathom-deep second record from black midi. Yes, it’s still, fantastically, a record to scare the neighbours".
