RUN LOGAN RUN
Run Logan Run are a head on collision of pounding tribal drums and screaming guttural saxophone.
Architects of intense contrast the duo’s diverse and precise instrumentation regularly flirts with fragility and raw power. ‘The Delicate Balance Of Terror’ is filled with contemplative deep jazz moments lodged in cyclic hypnotic trances, which are pushed to their very limits by ruthless drum sections. Elsewhere, the saxophone takes an altogether more audacious approach with a carpet bomb of FX driven monolithic slabs of bass, employing circular breathing, heavy delay and pitch shifting. Strewn throughout this are junctures of attenuation where they play with fragmented rhythms, and smatterings of delicate free jazz melodies.
Formed through a shared passion for improvisation, spiritual jazz and heavier experimental music, they have been authoring their own narrative in the new wave of UK crossover jazz. Their debut album was produced by Danalogue & Betamax (The Comet is Coming) and will be released on 4th May 2018 by Weizenbaum.
The new album was recorded live at Stoke Newington’s Total Refreshment Centre, which has been, and continues to be, a prominent platform for promoting, recording and releasing some of the best new talent from the British underground. It was also produced by the estimable Danalogue & Betamax of The Comet Is Coming, instilling further idiosyncratic dynamics into Run Logan Run’s already distinctive sound.
