About The Rhythm Method
Against all odds, The Rhythm Method have finally made it official. Formed half a decade ago in a Thameside squat protection scheme intended for professionals but inhabited by the barely-employed, the duo turned a summer of FIFA tournaments, cosmic breakdowns and 4pm beers into a series of bizarre, outsider-music iPhone demos that became a soundcloud, then a band, then a live show and now an album.
'How Would You Know I Was Lonely?' is a journey through the present - a descent into late 20's, late capitalist mind-funk; 12 stories of near-romances, yellow label dinners, chemical catatonia and lack-of-indentity politics. It's influences are strange and diverse, not always entirely credible or tangible; Scritti Politti, Aswad, Irish Pub karaoke, ITV4, youtube freestyles, celtic standards, Scritti Politti, Goldborne Road radios and more than a dose of Rod Stewart.
