Thom Sonny Green – Against The Clock
Alt-J drummer Thom Sonny Green steps up for an Against The Clock.
For most musicians, life in a Mercury Prize-winning arena band would be quite enough thank you very much. Not for Thom Sonny Green though, who’s taken a between-albums break from drumming in British indie crew Alt-J to piece together a Boards of Canada- and Clams Casino-worshipping ambient album full of surprising darkness.
A regular FACT reader (you might have spotted his entry in our recent competition to create a beat for grime queen Lady Leshurr to freestyle over), Green took on our Against The Clock challenge with aplomb recently, inviting us into the studio for an intimate, somewhat sped-up glimpse at how he composes. Check it out above and listen to Green’s finished track from the session below. High Anxiety is out August 19th.
