'Bygones' is the debut release by Evil Ex, aka Matt Calvert the guitar and synth mangling third of Three Trapped Tigers and producer of albums by TTT and Gallops.
Deviating from the Tigers' IDM-influenced tempos and erratic melodies and songs structures, 'Bygones' is a different proposition with a brooding guitar-led, groove-based experimental rock template.
As might be expected - not least as most tracks are powered by TTT powerhouse drummer Adam Betts - there's plenty of fire in the climaxes of 'D'Lin' and 'Bygones', and the dark avant-metal squalls of 'Cracks'.
The EP also accommodates delicate, glitchy guitar vignettes in the introductory pieces to 'Bygones' and 'Mirrors'.
