I wish there was an easy way to describe the brand of instrumental music that Pivot makes. It’s densely layered and the songs are progressive and lacking in formal song structures. In a vain attempt to assign Pivot into a genre, they’re possibly organic experimental electronica – how’s that for a description! Pivot include healthy doses of synthesisers and laptop wizardry, but there’s also guitar melodies, driving bass lines and Laurence Pike’s amazing drumming.
I’ve seen these guys live only once and they blew me away, I can’t wait to see them again.
