And So I Watch You From Afar biography
AND SO I WATCH YOU FROM AFAR, commonly shortened to just ASIWYFA, is a math rock band from Belfast, Northern Ireland. The band consists of Rory FRIERS and Tony WRIGHT on guitars, Johnny ADGER on bass and Chris WEE on drums. Billed by AU Magazine as "one of Northern Ireland's hottest properties", this band will appeal to those seeking a more brutal listening experience, a la WE ARE KNIVES or RUSSIAN CIRCLES. ASIWYFA takes pride in their interaction with fans/audiences and run very rigorous touring schedules. It should be very easy to find these fellows at a venue near you soon.

Review by Rune2000
Special Collaborator Prog Metal Team

4 stars Even though some speculate that we're getting close to an end of another progressive rock era, this notion doesn't seem to come across when looking at all the new talent that we've got rounded up just outside our door. This metaphorical door is meant to represent the comfort zone of an average prog fan since they generally base their opinion of a prog movement based on the regressive prog bands and artists.

Gangs is another one of this year's biggest album surprises but please don't let terms like instrumental math rock deceive you since this is far from an experience that only fans of the genre will enjoy. The music is filled with memorable hooks and melodies while still remaining complex and mathematical.

One thing that might not come across from this album experience is that And So I Watch You From Afar is a magnificent live band. Their live performances of these compositions has more than improved on the sophomore album originals and has pushed my enjoyment of the material even further. I'm not sure if there is really any point of dissecting this release into it's individual compositions and performances since this is really a continuous stream of music that is comprised of pure joy to both the ears and mind.

I really hope that more people would be able to leave their preconceptions of this music outside the door and just give Gangs a go based on nothing more than their passion for discovering new music. Just imagine yourself being a brave explorer on the great sea of undiscovered progressive rock music setting a course for the new frontier. The worst case scenario is that you gain a better understanding of the term math rock!

Review by The Runaway

4 stars Northern Ireland's And So I Watch You From Afar's eponymous debut sadly didn't get them acclaim it should. As a debut album for a band that plays two of the world's unknown genres (Post and Math Rock), it sort of dissappeared and they didn't get the appraise they needed until their second album, Gangs. However, their first album is longer and musically much more interesting.

The album opens with "Set Guitars To Kill". The blasting reverb toms and guitar soundscapes are destined to blow off any speaker membrane, before going into the fantastic guitar riff, switching between major and minor all the time to keep the interesting a bit more interesting. The band's unison sounds totally real and un-produced, and yet so full and heavy. Each riff gets better and better, and even more unique than the others. These guys sound like a metal band playing Math! 5/5

"A Little Bit of Solidarity Goes A Long Way" again uses the metal riffs from earlier, and yet now uses a sadder, melancholic feel with the pumping post rock chords. Random shouts are heard throughout the song, and I must admit they are a bit annoying, but hey, whatever they want! A bit too short for it to really progress though, and maybe a bit repetitive, but the core of the song is fantastic. 4/5

"Clench Fists, Grit Teeth... Go!" is regular ASIWYFA. Metallic riffs, mathy time signatures, and nothing really new to offer. Reminds me a bit of This Town Needs Guns meets heavy Muse. I must admit though, the aerial soundscapes ASIWYFA manage to produce are amazing. 3/5

"I Capture Castles" is post-rock to the max, style GY!BE meets guitars and distortion. The soundtrack to walking down the dark, empty road to your house until being attacked by a zombie, and then turning into a fierce, heartless, zombie killing machine... or something like that. The build ups in this song are amazing, but the song itself isn't really unique. 3/5

"Start a Band" continues with the post rock feel, this time almost abandoning the electric guitars, at least for the first minute and a half of the song, before going off into the happiest chord sequence in the history of mankind. Another amazing thing about ASIWYFA is their breaks. They're swift, and they're tight, and that's what all it needs to make an amazing break and to turn a song even better. This song demands hipster dancing, and maybe even headbanging, an anthem indeed. 4/5

With "Tip of the Hat, Punch in the Face", we're back to old-school ASIWYFA. Pumping guitars, odd time signatures (23/8, 22/8), and breaks that can kill your grandmother, this song just wins. 4/5

"If It Ain't Broke... Break It" constantly switches between ASIWYFA's Metal, Post, and Math skills. For a second you can think you're listening to A Silver Mt. Zion, and for another Megadeth, and for another Giraffes? Giraffes!. This song's composition isn't really all that great, but the playing can't get it less than 3/5.

"These Riots Are Just the Beginning" is the 'creepiest' track by ASIWYFA to date. Again a zombie movie-like song, all it needs is the sharp7 addition and it's the next zombie movie theme song. And... there it is. Again a headbanging/hipster dancing song, this is song is fracking awesome. 4/5

Oh... the things I've got to say about this one... "Don't Waste Time Doing Things You Hate". First off, the song name already gives it a minimum of 3/5. That uplifting happy feeling that makes you wanna flip off your desk at work, and the explosion at around the one-minute mark that adds to that feeling are awesome. Vocal breaks similar to Yes' Close to the Edge, and pumping guitar jumps that sound just like Battles' Sundome are what makes ASIWYFA what they are, the most eclectic Math band to date. After the song cools down again, the band plays some chilled stuff, very feel good, very fun. The name is definitely not misleading, this song is the perfect rebellion song. After a very loud musical explosion, everyone moves to percussion as the song takes it's post rock football anthem break. Middle eastern drum parts, the most cowbell you can get in a song, and the fantastic vocalizations provided by the whole band, wow, this song is freedom. After the first time you'll listen to this, you'll have to listen again and again until your ears can no longer function. This is a masterpiece. 5/5

"The Voiceless" goes on with the post rock theme that is now set until the end of the album. This whole song is very reminscent of How Strange, Innocence by Explosions in the Sky. Around the middle of the song, everything breaks down to the familiar chord sequence of Am, F, C, G, but of course, the sequence is beautiful and so is this song. Now the song sounds like a cross between EitS and Post-Metal band Jesu. 4/5

Now for the grand finale of the album, "Eat the City, Eat it Whole". Along with "Voiceless", this is probably the only slow song on the album. Again, this song sounds a whole lot like Explosions, maybe even a bit too much. Feels a bit stolen. Around the middle of the song, the song takes it's speed finally, in a blasting 5/8 riff destined to blow off any head you like (wonder how their live shows are). The classic ASIWYFA trick of using only Major7 chords is used for the first time in their career on this song. The song cools down a bit again for a two guitar melancholic melody, before exploding completely for the last 30 seconds of the song. 4/5

Overall, this album is pretty great. Some songs are weaker, but overall the album is filled with fantastic songs. Only two songs should be called masterpieces in my opinion, Don't Waste Time and Set Guitars to Kill. Most of the songs earned a 4/5 rating while, only two earned 5 and three earned 3. I'll give this album four stars out of 5.

Review by Conor Fynes
Prog Reviewer

4 stars 'Gangs' - And So I Watch You From Afar (7/10)

Math rock remains to be one of the few outlets in progressive rock I have not yet explored, so even while the sound here is not entirely alien to me, this 2011 album has given me an exciting jolt of adrenaline. And So I Watch You From Afar was recommended to me by the former bassist of my band, and showing me a track or two from their first, self-titled album, I found them to be very fresh sounding, impressing me with their technical and sporadic take on post-rock. 2011 sees And So I Watch You From Afar delivering their second dose of strangeness to the world, and it is fairly easy to see why post and math rock fans may be raving over it. Over a forty-five minute period, the band takes the listener on a rhapsodic blitz through a myriad of often technical, often dissonant, and mostly excellent musical ideas; the result is a feeling of awe at the band's display, but also of scatteredness.

And So I Watch You From Afar is incredibly complex music, but they manage to keep it energetic and fun, often switching between sharp, strange moments and more rocking ones. This gives a nice balance for the band's music, and the weirdly technical sound of the band never gets overbearing. Of course, it is the bands experimental approach that are their greatest asset; sometimes I think a crude Bela Bartok guitar composition on LSD, or at other times, Explosions In The Sky on PCP. There are melodies which weave their ways into the more conventional post-rock sections of this album, and those make for an incredibly refreshing change of pace.

The most lasting impression that 'Gangs' remains still in the way they are sporadically able to change between sounds and pack so many ideas into an album. There is structure to the songwriting here, but it appears more in the sense that some of the more memorable hooks pop up here and there throughout the song. Besides that, ASIWYFA has the carte blanche to keep exploring new ideas. The band is instrumental, but they never get boring; there is certainly never the sense that an idea ever gets old. On the contrary, sometimes it feels as if the band would have benefited by sticking on one or two ideas a little longer, and create more of a coherent structure with them. However, for what I'm assuming that the band was aiming for, this scattered and 'out there' feeling that the songwriting has is successful, for the most part.

The ideas here themselves can range from being brilliant in their complexity and arrangement, to sometimes quite frankly irritating; ASIWYFA's mathier dissonance and distorted appeal does not always brush by me the right way, and while I can only appreciate their crazy take on the post-rock sound, it is definitely a sound that leaves plenty of room for flaws. That being said, the band's excellence is fairly evident with 'Gangs', and at the rocketing pace they're going at, one can only expect them to reach the moon before long.

Review by The Runaway

4 stars At first, when my friend sent me a link to the first song off this album, I thought the band name was the song name because of how long it was. When I realised that suddenly many more "songs" are named this way, I realised that I had been fooled by the complex names of Post and Math Rock bands, once again. ASIWYFA is one of those bands that have such a sound that can only be confused with only very few bands, and also very rarely, and I think it really adds to their character. Their metallic parts on post-ish songs and unisono yells on mathy riffs are so unique that once you hear them once you can't confuse them with anything else.

The album opens with the uniquely named BEAUTIFULUNIVERSEMASTERCHAMPION. After I realised that this was not the band name, I immediately realised the beauty of this name. It may seem a bit pretentious at first but sometimes, we all feel like beautiful master champions of the universe, and I must say musically this song is similar. Opening with a few blasting multi guitar 10-noted chords and some massive yells reminiscent of the mighty Japandroids (the only band that sounds similar to these folks). They then go into a riffy quiet part to build up to the drum and bass entrance (not to be confused with the same genre which sounds nothing alike). The first riff comes back and is fused with the latter to create some sort of epic pre-reprise, and then before we even notice, they go back into the same latter riff, again, quiet. Another drum entrance and this sounds just a tad bit like a new Giraffes? Giraffes! song but still maintains a unique sound. Jonathan Adger's pumping bass sound fills the air as they enter yet another drum and bass breakdown. The guitars maintain a post-rock floaty feel but drummer Chris Wee adds the powerful metal feel. Around 3 minutes in, the song enters a very soft post-rock-ish feel, which sounds like Sigur Ros meets Explosions in the Sky. These guys aren't as unique as Battles which can not be compared to anything, but still maintain a cool sound. They build up to a climax as the drums play louder and louder and the guitars go higher higher, and higher. Guitarists Tony and Rory play octave unisono and raise the mood of the previously recorded post-rock riff with their massive reverbs. One more, final climax, before they reach the beautiful universely composed, master championly played ending.

Next song is the semi-eponimously titled Gang (starting never stopping). It starts with a low volumed guitar line before blasting into the whole band playing in insane time signatures, constantly changing, and almost impossible to understand. If there was ever a song for running from loan sharks, this is it. They return to their first riff and then go into a very very short riff that sounds very early prog, before going into an insane 11/4 riff with a very familiar chord sequence played in a unique fill. The style of ASIWYFA's short breaks is so amazing that I cannot find ways to describe it. Then, mysteriously, the drums dissappear for a few rounds before magically reappearing along with a few more guitars to help dirty up the already dirty track. And of course, no prog song is complete without a reprise, so they go back to the main riff with some sort of insane drum solo by Chris which then breaks down into a beautiful one minute soft post rock piece.

Search:Party:Animal is one of the more hardcore pieces of the album. Personally, I find metal a bit hard to enjoy, so this is a weaker track for me, although the band plays so beautifully it is hard to not enjoy. Again, the use their famous breaking style to make the song sound much more epic when it returns from the break a second later. Rory and Tony loop themselves over and over, before going into an epically massive bombastic riff, one minute and 20 seconds into the song. Two minutes and a half in, they go into a riff which sounds oddly similar to Devotchka's The Enemy Guns, however very different in terms of arrangement. A few more riffs, back to the Devotchka riff, with a twist, and the first riff played over it, and the song ends.

Now comes my favorite song. Garage Post Rock masterpiece, 7 Billion People All Alive At Once. As post rock title tracks always do, this one enlightened me. The thought of being only one person of 7 billion people all living, and breathing, and performing the same tasks daily, it's quite amazing, this world, and this is what this song makes me think. Starting with a post rock-ish riff, joined by a very ASIWYFA drum part, the song then goes into a slowly climaxing part, with a beautiful orchestartion, before breaking down shortly into a guitar, line... BADADADA, the many vocals fill the air as the band reprises the post rock riff however with grungy guitar lines and blasting drum parts. This gives me chills every time, the unisono vocals feel as if all the 7 billion people have united for one joined cause. The post rock riff quickly becomes a mathy riff, also reminiscent of Foals. Short drum burst, and back into the riff. Again, they burst, but this time it goes into what would sound like EitS meet heavy ASIWYFA.

Think:Breathe:Destroy is sort of a sequel to Search:Party:Animal, both lyrically and musically. They play a metallic riff alternating between 11/8 and 10/8 before taking a short King Crimson-ish break, and then you suddenly realize how KC it is. They then take another break and blast into a pop meets math metal sort of riff, and then into a grinding, squealing, and screeching guitar solo. Break, once more, and they enter some sort of majory, happy, jumpy guitar riff. They loop over it and play more and more parts until they enter another squealy guitar solo which blasts into another ASIWYFA style riff. Chris goes all out on his drums, bashing everything in sight, while Rory lays out the tracks for Tony to continue with his insane solo. More insane riffage and the guitar loops and drums stop revealing some sort of ambient, airy, synth section, reminiscent of Mew's Chinaberry Tree. Some guitar feedback and growls as the song segues into Homes.

Homes is the weakest part of the album, in my opinion. I find it pretty boring and not nearly as good as the epics earlier in the album. And also, ASIWYFA are not an 11 minute song band, more like five, and that is a style perfected earlier on.

Lifeproof is also pretty dull, as, musically, it sums up pretty much the whole of the album. Not in terms of reprises, just genres. It is, however, boring and lacks the beauty that songs like 7 Billion and BEAUTIFULUNIVERSE have.

Overall, the first half of the album is amazing, but after a while it gets boring and repetitive. This is why, I give Gangs by And So I Watch You From Afar, four out of five stars.

Review by Slaughternalia

5 stars At the time this review is being written, it's one of the 2011's best albums. And So I Watch You From Afar are a great mix of post rock, math rock, blended with metal. Despite their aggressiveness, they're kind of bouncy and fun a lot of the time. The instruments REALLY know how to work off of each other to create a really exhilarating experience. A lot of mixing and post production went into this album. It feels like the instruments have been mixed together PERFECTLY. The drums often feel like they're being smashed really hard, and they're DRIVING the music forward. The two guitarists really know what they're doing. One can be playing some really metal stuff while the other plays a badass mathy riff, and it just sounds so GOOD to me. It kind of makes me want to drink energy drinks and headbang late into the night. It really makes you feel aggressive in an awesome and fun way. Please, do yourself a favour and GET THIS ALBUM. It's simply amazing.

Review by besotoxico

5 stars Head banging to the max! This is my first experience listening to this band. I stumbled across this album and a performance of the album on You Tube. The energy and intensity are unmatched by most bands today. They play with the same intensity as Lightning Bolt and Hella. Though this album isn't avant-noise like the aforementioned bands. This music is very structured. The musicians are high caliber and play with extreme precision.

7 billion People All Alive At Once start you with a Eastern European boat ride. Then they rip you off the edge of the boat send you spiraling down towards the bottom of the sea. Just as you breathe your last breath, just before you drown, you see the light. You hold on just long enough to swim towards the light. The light grabs you and takes you to the sky. You fly around the planet and observe how small we really are. As you come to this wisdom you notice your body dematerializing into the light. Your energy begins to waltz with Mother Earth.

Every song on this album is gold. Straight money. I don't have time to write a more detailed review because I'm too busy listening to this album. I recommend this to everyone including my Abuelita. Five stars for a stellar album. This is one of the best albums in its class. Period.

Review by Atavachron
Special Collaborator Honorary Collaborator

4 stars Kickin' debut proper from these Irish posties, stuffed to the seams with youthful power and emotion, showing vague influences from alternative rock but smashing it into pieces and replacing it with something much more explosive. Closer to a headbutt from a stout, neck-less soccer hooligan. A sound is achieved that penetrates deep with the dual guitars, drums & bass creating wall after wall of seismic sea waves as the band pounds the shoreline. Powerhouse drummer Chris Wee, bassist Johnny Adger and the guitars of Tony Wright & Rory Friers are all-for-one. Their approach is unimpeachably that of a team, creating a huge, absolute, unselfish singularity with the music, never allowing individualism to get in the way.

'Set Guitars to Kill' establishes the bare-knuckle tone, Wright & Friers echoing a distant storm, Adger thudding out accents underlaid with Wee's phenomenal drums (this is no 'wee' player), culminating in a beautiful twin guitar line. A touch of Brit-alt for 'A Little Bit of Solidarity Goes a Long Way', jingling Math in 'Clench Fists,Grit Teeth' with more skull-rattling hunks of rhythm and progressing well past 6 minutes into some unexpected stuff. The Edge's impact is heard on 'I Capture Castles' with a good mix of military strike and stony spacerock. Fun and garage-like 'Start a Band' and 'Tip of the Hat,Punch in the Face' with spectacular post-metallic breaks, totally killer 'If it Ain't Broke,Break it', ending in softer territory for 'The Voiceless' and 'Eat the City,Eat it Whole'.

Complex though not purebred math/post and with far more emphasis on the expression of feeling rather than the formation of thought, ASIWYFA is one hell of a band that would likely blow away almost any poor devils who were dumb enough to go on after them. And like a group of rioting footy fans who are "Just out for a good time,mate", this foursome will quite easily crush you into bite-size bits. Right. Toodle pip.

3 stars A solid one, really. I'm not into Post-Rock much recently, but there are still some enjoyable albums, even though made by the same good old receipts. AND SO I WATCH YOU FROM AFAR's self-titled release is kind of such one. It has everything one can expect from any Post-Rock Album nowadays: some Electronica, some Metal, some weird tracks' names, some melodies, but nothing to write home about if you've already heard this thousand times before. I thought I'd never be that snobby, but seriously some albums are good only when you're listening to them right now...and when you turn them off, you can hardly remember a single note from it. Recommended for genre's fans
