Event Details

Thought Forms are one of those rare acts for whom the term “sonic progression” actually applies. Judging by the beguiling sound chasms of their debut, through the alternatingly brain-melting and biting Ghost Mountain to last year’s near perfect Songs For Drowning they are also on a quest for sonic perfection.

Oh and they can do it all live as well, and in spades! Which is why we are thrilled to put them on one of the best stages in London and on a Saturday night to boot.

Praise for Thought Forms
Ghost Mountain is a superbly heady mix of full on doom rock drone and effects laden MBV style indie rock… If you can imagine Sonic Youth colliding head on with Sunn O))) then you’re pretty spot on.
– Norman Records (9/10)

With facets of prog, doom, shoegaze and post-rock the four-piece craft atmospheric, gloomy cuts that are utterly satisfying and realised. Charlie Romijn carries the performance, veering in and out amid the menacing pianos and fuzzed up guitars and bass.”
– The Quietus

Songs About Drowning comes as close to a perfect ten as can be bestowed on any release that hasn’t stood a test of time or without making allowance for even the faintest prospect of improvement. On this showing it’s hard to see how they, or anyone else, are going to better this any time soon. Bets may now be off for album of the year.
– Terrascope

It’s their most accomplished statement yet, one which manages to sound more refined and grown up while still packing a mean punch to an exposed aural solar plexus. It’s difficult to overstate how good an album this is – you’d be hard pressed to pick a better album all year.”
– Soundblab

“If there is one album you need to buy this year, it’s Thought Forms’ third album, Songs About Drowning. It’s just sublime…
There is so much heart and soul in this album it is impossible not to be moved to tears and to want to crawl inside the music and live through the lyrics again and again.
– From The Inside
