‘Yes, I’m Breathing’ is our first listen to Solkyri‘s second full length ‘Sad Boys Club’, out this week via Bird’s Robe! The Sydney-based four piece have been dishing out apocalyptic instrumentals for almost a decade. The experience shows on their latest, it’s a lashing of reverb-heavy post rock performed with math-rock precision! European fans can catch them on tour through Germany, Czech Republic, Hungary, Romania, Austria and Poland next month.
