Notorious Bristol rule-benders Scalping released their debut album, Void, this year — but it’s their dynamic live shows that really define them. The band apply the mindset of a DJ to live, traditional rock instruments. On stage, they’re nothing short of dramatic: four silhouettes in front of a giant animated screen, the visuals where song lyrics once would be. Their music bridges a gap between guitar and electronica, metal and techno, to distorted, buzzy effect. A Scalping show is like no other, chaotic and highly escapist — you’d never guess they write their songs on spreadsheets.
