Code I is, Alex Wilkinson.

Code I launched in 2015 as part of a University project undertaken by it's sole member. Since then, Code I's work has been featured on in radio, magazine and online.

Combining classic post-rock elements of soft flourishing guitar, spacious soundscapes and melodic fragments, this project is not your typical post-rock act. Alex's influences range from hardcore bands such as 'Being as an Ocean', 'August Burns Red' and 'Counterparts' to post rock classics like 'Red Sparowes' and 'God is an Astronaut'.

Alex has been extremely grateful to have met some inspiring people on his post-rock journey and what started out as a humble University project has now led to two full-length albums, two EP's and numerous singles. Alongside this, Code I has also signed to Fluttery Records.

"Phosphenia" is his latest self released album.

Album: Willow - Willow

Band: Willow
Album: Willow
Label: Stickfigure Recordings
Year: 2007

01. And Finally, I Can Breathe
02. When The Sea Called Our Names
03. I Have Seen The Grave
04. 1172

"With a metamodern approach to post-rock, Georgia's Willow bombard crunching, hurtling, and oft subdued, instrumental-metal nuanced riffage to almost iconoclastic proportions; tempered perhaps by a lack of direction, or innate focus, since mastered by its peers, the band's debut EP is, indeed, encouraging. Alleviating sustained torrents of ringing guitars, the dynamics that permeate the record work well in creating a balance between the visceral and the serene. In seamlessly creating this aura, Willow are able to control the pace and sentiment that they wish to convey. Not only does this maxim allow the music to flow perhaps more superfluously than it has a right to - more importantly, it allows the band to create a simulacrum -- an arbitrary palate where the soul of the record can be laid bare, granting them an absolute creative discipline to sculpt and emote at will. And it is, surely, this facet that differentiates the epic and tragic from colloquial hearsay. 

Typifying the genre's inclination for quiet/loud pieces that build and detonate, (and, naturally, vice versa) the EP opens with the blistering "And Finally I Can Breathe". Employing digitally altered speech snippets, the song progresses into a cacophonous deluge of violent, scattershot guitars that wouldn't sound out of place on an emo(tional) record. The result is such that the proceeding segue, into the Mono-lite "When The Sea Called Our Names", is almost too cautious; the resulting edifice is, ultimately, a disappointment, taking far too long to establish any type of presence or purpose. With "I Have Seen The Grave", however, Willow make amends with an auspicious statement. Coming on like "Mouths Trapped In Static" or "Have you Passed Through This Night?", the track oozes cinematic grandeur: conversations pan amongst static-noise and piano arrangements before breaking from the SFTF staple and igniting into EITS tradition. Although rarely straying from this principal, (one critique here would certainly be its longevity) the band's progressive tendencies unquestionably deserve praise." - The Silent Ballet

Lost In Kiev’s progressive energy leads to oneiric epic post-rock while still emitting the massive energy of it.

Their influences are Russian Circles, Red Sparowes, 65 Days Of Static, Cult of Luna, Maybeshewill, Mogwai... 

Lost In Kiev writes and records their own texts as an alternative to sampling movie soundbites which are commonly used in post-rock tracks. 

Artwork and live video clips are also created by the band which generate an emotional and graphic cohesive experience during live shows. 

The band toured during 2013 and 2014 for the release of their first album before starting to write the next LP in 2015. Lost in Kiev is now comprised of 4 members which has allowed them to welcome a fresh and creative energy. 

The new LP "Nuit Noire" released in September 2016 on dunk! records, it's an anthem of the night. Odes to nights of dreams and loneliness that also become mystical.
