I Ching – release their new video! It's me
It's fun and it's a Monday. A promising band from England… with starry ambitions and relevant noises. I predict that the transient symbol of this band will be cash!
Buy into it.
I Ching is Rollo Smallcombe and Kevin Emre. The pair met at art college and soon after started to make music together.
Although writing as a duo, the band play live as a four piece, adding Andrew Ford (keys) and Tom Jones (drums) to the line up. They currently write from a home studio in Finsbury Park.
I Ching are influenced by pop, the avant-garde, 60s psych and Turkish garage, as well as early 80s synthesiser music. With an emphasis on colour and texture in their sound, the songs are written and produced to probe the imagination and imagery inside the listeners' head.
I Ching release their debut 7" single It's Me (b/w Drive) today, April 23rd, on Best Fit Recordings. Click to buy here.
