A poundingly percussive piano trio in the Neil Cowley mould, the South Trio comprises pianist William South, electric bassist Ashley Molloy South and drummer Eddie Hick, who plays in the style of Elvin Jones meets Animal.

Rough not only at the edges but in the middle too, this catchy lo-fi debut was recorded in two days, and sounds like it. All the bits don't join up properly yet but the thrumming, jangling, nervy music has great powerand groove. They play The Vortex in London's Dalston on 20 July.
