The Channels Debut “Pill” Video via FLOOD Magazine

Disposable Camera Due Out August 19th via Designer Medium Records

Announce Rare Boston Show

The Channels are sharing their new single and music video for “Pill” today on FLOOD Magazine. The trio have once again emerged from the depths of Boston’s experimental underground to release Disposable Camera, a new EP and the follow up to their much beloved debut. Due out August 19th via Nashville’s Designer Medium Records (Free Pizza, Watcher, The Craters), the video is as mysterious as the song is harsh. It’s an attack on the senses with hyper color delusions and earthquaking noise manipulation.

FLOOD Magazine shared:”…a clattering assemblage of shaking, hoarse-throated guitar work and ringing percussion that’s not dissimilar to Dublin’s Girl Band … The dispassion of Kaplan’s voice is unnerving, but it’s also what keeps “Pill”’s energy from melting into itself. Similarly, the video’s slow tracking shots—imagine gentle left-right scrolls—mitigate the uncomfortable tension of seeing an otherwise idyllic outdoor setting taken over by day-glo.”

Hailing from the same Boston, MA scene that harbored acts such as Skimask, (New England) Patriots, and Guerrilla Toss, The Channels bring forth a caterwauling ruckus of refined noise guitar, feedback ridden bass grooves and bizarro drum repetitions. The trio ofNick Baker, Wes Kaplan (The Craters), and Ian Kovac (ex-Guerilla Toss) are deeply influenced by the 80’s post-no-wave scene of New York, guiding The Channels take on minimalist ideas while creating songs that are equal parts introspective and refreshing. With their new album “Disposable Camera,” The Channels display just as much of an interest in deconstructing punk as they do reconstructing noise rock.

“Even in the niche of no wave and post-punk — from which The Channels supposedly draw their influence — it’s hard to find songs that mimic the same chaotic-but-refined whimsy that this track exudes. Like professional collagists, the Channels cut, paste, and loop discordant sound” – SPIN
