First Play of the new Golden Python Album

By Maryam Hassan

Happy Thursday everyone! If there’s one thing we love on a Thursday, or any day of the week come to think of it, it’s a good sounding math/punk band. We have a massive weakness for the genre, so today we are thrilled to bring you the new album from Golden Python because we love new music, we love them and we know you will too.

So where did this awesome band come from? Let’s give you some history.

Golden Python began with the breakup of Vincent (guitar/vocals) and Julien’s (drums) previous band, Major House, a four-piece indie/math-rock outfit. Wanting still to share ideas of music based on complex rhythms, catchy riffs, and with a more punk aesthetic, they soon recruited bassist Vincent Savary, coming from the insanely fast and technical band First Fragment. The last addition to the band came in the form of guitarist Nathanaël Labrèche, a bandmate of Julien’s in Bisbâyé, a crazily technical metal five-piece with two drummers. Now with a full lineup, the concepts of poly- and isorythm took over the direction of Golden Python’s writing, informed by influential bands and artists across the entire spectrum, ranging from Algernon Cadwallader, Steve Reich, Maps & Atlases,Meshuggah, Don Caballero, and Guthrie Govan.

The album is out on Stack Your Roster on digital and CD format and you can also grab a copy from Bandcamp. Go do it!
