Since meeting, the members of Thought Forms have together explored an everchanging sonic terrain; their constant evolution, coupled with the deep connection they’ve developed, has made them one of the most exciting guitar bands in the UK.

Finding themselves at home on the acclaimed Invada Records, if their self-titled debut for the label was about nding the dynamic limits of their atmospheric sound (gently prodding and probing varying elements) then the huge great slab of guitar that greets you instantly on their sophmore album ‘Ghost Mountain’ roars with the con dence of a band who’d found their level from which to fully explore their creative expression. Veering between two opposites, from brisk, scuzzy American garage rock to brutal, anguished noise constructions of ethereal psychedelic doom, the scope of Thought Forms sonic arsenal is vast.

The group’s familial bond has aided them in making their mark live; tour support slots with Portishead, 65daysofstatic, Beak>, Kaiser Chiefs, and Chelsea Light Moving (Thurston Moore) as well as appearances at festivals such as ATP, Greenman, Supersonic and Incubate have seen them cultivate a colossal sound that bands twice their number would struggle to recreate.
