Enigmatic London four-piece black midi have quickly cemented their reputation as the hottest new underground band in the country, following a string of sold-out live dates – including an upcoming show at EartH – and surprise shows punctuated by constantly shifting sets and blistering musicianship.

Debut album Schlagenheim, due for release on 21st June via Rough Trade, was recorded with Speedy Wunderground producer Dan Carey, who the band praises for his quick, unfussy approach. black midi laid down eight of the record’s nine tracks in just five days. The process was one of refining and rebuilding tracks around the initial structures. Five hour jams would sometimes yield a riff that then became a few bars of a song. As anyone who’s been lucky enough to catch black midi live over recent months will testify, black midi’s songs are slippery creatures.

While black midi’s minimal online and press presence, coupled with their uncompromising youth, has caused the music world to gravitate towards them and their indefinable sound. They are impossible to put your finger on, but equally impossible to ignore.
