by The Black Swan Effect



A collaboration between longtime friends Dominic Greensmith (the drummer for Glastonbury Brit-poppers Reef) and singer/songwriter Gareth Hale, Admission (and the Black Swan Effect) grew out of scoring sessions for a documentary directed by Greensmith's wife, Heidi. Steeped in the overcast alt-rock of OK Computer-era Radiohead, the wounded midnight rock & roll posturing of Jeff Buckley, and the propulsive swagger of Kings of Leon, the group's Real World Records debut (Peter Gabriel signed them after hearing an early demo) has atmosphere to spare, and while it may be a bit too beholden to its influences to turn heads more than a few degrees, it bristles with enough nervy energy and musical acumen to possibly pull in fans of modern day mood-casters like Alt-J, Everything Everything, and the xx.
