Been meaning to write about these lads for some time, but their e-mail from back in June got lost in my inbox. Apologies.
Binary has a bit of an interesting background. Formed in 2010 by David Troster after leaving Yale University where he was studying molecular biology, the band settled in London and started to hone their sound. They describe themselves as an “alternative rock band,” which isn’t fair to them because it fills my head with all kinds of rubbish images. Perhaps a redo of that bio is order, fellas?
On the single “Prisoner,” which is out on 28 November through Luv Luv Luv, the band expertly moves through a slow, dark verse that gently bites before a crescendo into an anthemic chorus.
