With a sound not too dissimilar to LCD Soundsystem, Formation are an emerging twin brother duo that you need to catch live. Layering club infused synths over galloping drums, the pair burst onto the scene with a remix of Shura’s Indecision, and have since followed up with storming tracks of their own. Receiving praise from i-D and Noisey, and after getting a worldwide premiere for new track The Rest Is Noise on Zane Lowe’s Beats 1 show, the siblings are set to shine in 2016. In support of the release of their Leon Vynehall produced EP Under The Tracks in November, Formation are taking their futuristic synth pop across the UK.
