Water Glyphs

Water Glyphs

The new ep from Conductive Alliance was recently completed with the help of Griffin Rodriguez and others. The band is really excited about this and they should be. Water Glyphs finds the band at the height of sonic exploration. Tracking was split between Steve Albini's Electrical Audio Studios and Shape Shoppe, and you can detect the influence of both studios on this seven track ep.

The ep opens up the instrumental, mathematical, and electronic title track which fades into early ‘90’s jangle pop of “Dark Flowers”. The ep is consistently shifting styles and sound, from light to dark, from pop to aggressive more industrial sounding stretches. The ep is a big forward for the band and should be released later this year.

Conductive Alliance will be performing on August 21st at Rice and Rockwell Block Party. You can preorder the album through their Kickstarter Page through the 23rd.
