After retiring his project Polar Bear, and following his stints in other bands like Sons of Kemet or Basquiat Strings and collaborations with artists like Patti Smith, Herbie Hancock, David Byrne or Brian Eno, London based Scottish drummer Seb Rochford has re-emerged with a new project called Pulled By Magnets. A three-piece, the band also comprises Pete Wareham (Acoustic Ladyland, Polar Bear, F-IRE) on saxophone and Neil Charles (Zed-U, Empirical, Tomorrow’s Warrior) on bass. “The sound of Pulled by Magnets takes a new and powerful direction”, says the press release. “It is a sound of a deep and personal exploration and musical re-alignment, conceived with a determination to stir and immerse.”
