Breeze past the inexpressible band name, and London trio Qtier are a quite singular, strongly positioned proposition. Like a calmed Darkstar, or Delphic rewired to incorporate even a smidgen of subtlety Kind is as yet their coup – a cushioning gauze of intricately manipulated electronics and intimate vocals that’s delicate as gossamer, yet still pulsating as much of Pantha du Prince’s estimable kingdom of a back catalogue. It’s a keeper, and one which can be kept and indeed treasured once Bad Life get around to releasing the band’s as yet untitled second EP, presumably around the time they come to play The Old Blue Last March 21st.
