So we thought it was the perfect time to sit Pete down and get him to pick the three records that influenced the music he makes today. Pete being Pete, picked five. Great choices though.
Godspeed You! Black Emperor – Lift Your Skinny Fists Like Antennas To Heaven
It taught me the value of patience in music. You wait 10 minutes and then when the melody hits you it’s amplified tenfold. And always leaves you wanting more. When I went travelling in 2012 I took this album with me and nothing else.
A Silver Mt Zion – Born Into Trouble As The Sparks Fly Upwards
iLiKETRAiNS – Progress Reform
I loved the simpleness of this record, everything fitting together to show you that don’t need the most complicated individual parts to compliment the whole – precisely the opposite.
Set Fire To Flames – Sings Reign Rebuilder
It’s just got this perfect blend of melody alongside these tape recordings and noise basically. It really makes the melody stand out even more and become heightened. But it’s also a lot about patience.
