Consisting of Verity Susman, the front woman of Electrelane and Matthew Simms, guitarist of the cult band WIRE, the Memorials are a British duo in a class of their own. Together they revel in psychedelic to post-punk sounds. The band was formed to write two movie soundtracks. The result sounds like guitar pop referencing the 70-90s, interspersed with occasional ritual drone and improvised freak-outs. Much more evocative than many other guitar bands, they take us on a journey through different times and moods.
