case you missed the memo – the much-maligned world of prog-rock seems to be having a renaissance right about now. A genre that was once mocked and giggled at, it’s now in the midst of a second wave – and these 3 lads from Liverpool are already a big part of it.

Their first track in over a year, ‘Radiant Hex’ is taken from Ninetails second EP ‘Quiet Confidence’, due for release today. It’s a cerebral cluster of chimes and colour, with erratic beats and soulfully minimal vocals.

Speaking of their new EP, Ninetail’s Jordan Balabar explains, “It feels very much like something we needed to get out of our system; a culmination of the many euphoric, overwhelming, achey, chest-grabbing musical moments that we’ve encountered and digested over the years.”

‘Quiet Confidence’ is out on the 17th March via Pond Records, and you can catch them live supporting John Hopkins at Liverpool’s Sound City on the 1st May 2014.
