Inspired by the DIY aesthetic of punk rock and Buzzcocks’ Spiral Scratch EP, The Membranes formed in Blackpool in 1977. They created their own distinctive bass driven post punk that was a big influence on the underground scene and were John Peel and music press favourites before splitting in 1990. When one of their former support bands, My Bloody Valentine, asked them to reform for a festival in 2010 the band returned and recorded their most acclaimed and bestselling album – 2015’s ‘Dark Matter/Dark Energy’ – and played at festivals across the world.
This year The Membranes finally followed up that critically acclaimed universe-explaining LP. ‘What Nature Gives…Nature Takes Away’ is a double album, using the band’s own 20-piece choir to juxtapose their dark drones and melancholic epic power across sixteen songs about the beauty and violence of nature.
