Further Sky breaks Basement's musical silence following their final acclaimed 2012 full-length Colourmeinkindess. Boasting two new songs and a cover of Suede's Animal Nitrate, the EP updates the band's alternative rock explorations with a decidedly British flavour.
Recorded spring 2014 at North London's Livingston Studio (The Clash, Bjork, Jesus and Mary Chain), new tracks Summer's Colour and Jet build upon past work adding more complex interwoven melodies touched with the subtle psychedelic tendencies of Swervedriver and Failure. Animal Nitrate provides the perfect cousin to Basement's originals, operating in the same melodic headspace with lively instrumentals and a shimmering chorus.

- Further Sky by Basement
Beginning with a guitar riff straight out of Thurston Moore’s locker, Basement veer off in a more standard Foo Fighters esque rock territory for the remainder of the first track 'Summer's Colour' with plaintive, pleading vocals and a vague shoegaze feel to the chord changes on the chorus. The second track 'Jet' (not that one) has a bit of Placebo in the whining vocals but provides the best bit of the EP when everything drops down and they get a bit eerily Radiohead. On the flip they take on Suede’s ‘Animal Nitrate’ - hard to top the original on that one but they do a standard moshing-in-the-indie-disco-circa-91 take on it.
