Formed 3 years ago by accident, Transept unified their loves of heath robinson-style bedroom electronics, oscillator drones and sugary melody around a common enthusiasm for distortion and hiss.
Recorded in an old handbag factory and mixed in an academic electroacoustic studio, TRSPT001 is their debut album.
