Black Rivers

Posted April 17, 2015, 4:45 p.m.

Twins Andy and Jez Williams braved the unforgiving Welsh winter to bring us the sound of their eponymous debut, their first release since their other band Doves took an indefinite hiatus. On Black Rivers the English two-piece fully indulge in their electronic tendencies, which were peppered throughout Doves' output creating an at once melancholic and immersive sound. Here, drummer and co-singer Andy tells SPB's Dublin-based writer about his Irish heritage, returning to the live circuit after 4 years away and how he really feels about being asked about Doves. Scene Point Blank: When I first started listening to Black Rivers I wasn't sure if I should've expected something along the lines of Doves' "M62 Song" or not ...

Paint it Black

Posted Oct. 16, 2010, 11:05 a.m.

Being an outlet for frustration, aggression, and a variety of other angst-type emotions, it's common for many hardcore bands to exist for only small increments of time. Being in a hardcore band can be a very cathartic, yet taxing experience, making a fuse that's easily snuffed. Paint it Black, running on six years and three albums, are always abundant with ideas and energy without showing an inkling of remission or tire. Dan Yemin spoke with Scene Point Blank about the politics behind New Lexicon and how it gives nods hardcore punk's past while paving a road to ...
